The reverse process, deplasmolysis or cytolysis, can occur if the cell is in a hypotonic solution resulting in a lower external osmotic pressure and a net flow of water into the cell. 12 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Shivansh Preet Chandwara, koderma, India 63 Questions 585 Answers 31 Best Answers 228 Points View Profile Shivansh Preet Competent 2020-11-08T05:20:21+05:30Added an answer on November 8, 2020 at 5:20 am Plasmolysis is a typical response of plant cells exposed to hyperosmotic stress. The loss of turgor causes the violent detachment of the living protoplast from the cell wall. The plasmolytic process is mainly driven by the vacuole. Plasmolysis is reversible (deplasmolysis) and characteristic to living plant cells. 1 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to add an answer.
