Explain cell elongation (induced by auxin) and its advantages/functions

Asked by somyap 1st May 2010, 4:19 PM
Answered by Expert

Auxin promotes cell elongation in the following way: Recently divided cells are small, square shaped and densely packed. Auxin causes these cells to pump H+ into their cell walls. The higher pH activates enzymes to break cross linkages in the wall allowing the ever present turgor pressure to elongate these cells.


Kindly post each query separately.
