Mitosis in root tips

Post by fran008 » Mon Nov 21, 2005 6:52 pm

After mounting a slide to see the various stages of mitosis, I have a number of unclear things about the methodology used can someone please explain

The cellulose walls of plants are held together by compounds in the middle lamella. Treatment with hydrochloric acid breaks these down. Why was this helpful in the preperation of the slide?

Thanks for your help
