ma'am can we find cells in potato skin?and what will happen to the cell if it is placed in vineger?

Asked by ankitaawari 15th May 2010, 7:17 AM
Answered by Expert

Potato skin is composed of suberized phellem cells, the outer component of the tuber periderm. Following suberization of their walls, the phellem cells die, thus creating an outer defensive layer. The cell corpses are filled with air and therefore provide thermal insulation, the suberized walls prevent invasion by micro-organisms and wax deposits that are embedded in the suberin material prevent desiccation of the plant tissue.


Kindly post each query separately.
