Xylem transfer cells

The lateral transport of ions from root xylem to leaves probably takes place via xylem transfer cells which have two special features:

  1. The cell wall of these cells facing xylem is elaborately corrugated for providing large surface area for absorption; and
  2. The cells contain many mitochondria that are located close to the corrugated wall in order to supply ATP for the active transport that takes place across these walls.
