Animal Cell Hypotonic Solution
In this case since the extracellular fluid has low osmolarity the water would rush into the cell.
Animal cell hypotonic solution. Examples of hypotonic solution plants and fungi. The cell on the far right represents a turgid plant cell in a hypotonic solution. Animal cells will burst. Plant cells respond the same way as animal cells in a hypotonic solution but the affects may not be as severe.
In this case that is the inside of the cell. The organisms are constantly cycling solutes to keep. The turgid cells push outward on their cell walls which push against each other creating a rigid structure. This creates cells that are turgid.
Remember water moves from a region of low osmolarity to a region of high osmolarity. A hypotonic solution is a solution with a lower salt concentration than in normal cells of the body and the blood. Plants have rigid cell walls made of cellulose covering the plasma membrane. What happens when you place an animal cell in a hypotonic solution.
A cell in a hypotonic solution may gain enough water to lyse or rupture the cell membrane which destroys the cell. Large plants and fungi control the environment around their cells helping ensure the environment is always a hypotonic solution compared to the cells. An animal cell in a hypotonic solution will absorb water by. Which type of cell may burst if it becomes hypotonic.
This makes it difficult for the cell to lyse but the increased pressure causes the sides of the cell to bulge out.
