describe a tumour using the terms differentiation, dedifferentiation, redifferentiation
In thisprocess, cells derived from root apical and shoot apical meristems and cambium differentiate and mature to perform specific functions.
Structural changes occur in plant cell (both cell wall and protoplasm).For example, cells develop strong, elastic, and lignocellulosic cell wall for long distance transport of water.
Process in which livingdifferentiated cells regain their capacity to divide
For example: Formation of meristems such as interfascicular cambium and cork cambium from fully differentiated parenchyma cells
Process in whichdifferentiated cells that have lost their ability to divide are reformed from dedifferentiated cells
Redifferentiated cells have the ability to perform specific functions.
- Just like growth, differentiation in plants is also open since cells arising from same meristem may differentiate to form different structures depending uponits location.
