WHAT DOES SYMPLAST MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Symplast

The symplast of a plant is the inner side of the plasma membrane in which water can freely diffuse. The plasmodesmata allow the direct flow of small molecules such as sugars, amino acids, and ions between cells. Larger molecules, including transcription factors and plant viruses, can also be transported through with the help of actin structures. This allows direct cytoplasm-to-cytoplasm flow of water and other nutrients along concentration gradients. In particular, it is used in the root systems to bring in nutrients from soil. It moves these solutes from epidermis cells through the cortex into the endodermis and eventually the pericycle, where it can be moved into the xylem for long distance transport. It is contrasted with the apoplastic flow, which uses cell wall transport.

Definition of symplast in the English dictionary

The definition of symplast in the dictionary is the continuous system of protoplasts, linked by plasmodesmata and bounded by the cell wall.
