Cytorrhysis

From Biology-Online Dictionary | Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Definition: Cytorrhysis is the complete collapse of a plant cell's cell wall within plants due to the loss of water through osmosis. This usually follows plasmolysis, but unlike plasmolysis cytorrhysis is irreversible, as the plant cells die. Cytorrhysis will also cause a much greater loss of shape and structure.]
