kok-saghyz is covered with a well-developed periderm, consisting of phellem, phellogen and phelloderm.
However, as in the caulirosula species, the secondary coating is formed by layers of suberized cells, which are discontinuous in the organ and do not form a periderm itself, because there is no phellogen (Fig.
The cells in the outer layers of the bulb (epidermis) slit towards the tubers, while the cells in a layer beneath the epidermis (hypodermic) divide outwards with increasing carbohydrate content of tubers, a layer of cells that divide is called phellogen [36,37].
Secondary growth is similar to verified type for most of the dicots roots, cambium with procambium, and phellogen that also origins from pericycle.
Formation of the primary protective layer and phellogen after leaf abscission in peach.
They are associated with the activity of phellogen deposited in subepidermal cells typically at the microcrack formation site.
Concurrently, in the cortical region, there was a phellogen differentiation among the first sub epidermal layers by the thickening of the external periclinal wall, which extends to the anticlinal walls (Figure 2i).
Healing phellogen developed only in the cut edges of the bark bounding the wounded secondary phloem and became continuous with the phellogen of original periderm of intact areas of the root.
