The recipe calls for chopped onions he is growing onions in the garden this year the recipe calls for chopped onion. The clear epidermal cells exist in a single layer and do not contain chloroplasts, because the onion fruiting body (bulb) is used for storing energy, not photosynthesis each plant cell has a cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, and a large vacuole. Onion cell an onion is a multicellular (consisting of many cells) plant organismas in all plant cells, the cell of an onion peel consists of a cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus and a large vacuole the nucleus is present at the periphery of the cytoplasm the vacuole is prominent and present at the centre of the cell it is surrounded by cytoplasm the presence of a cell wall and a large vacuole are indicators that help identify plant cells, such as seen in the onion peel.
Experiment 7: onion mitosis introduction: in this activity, you will estimate the relative duration of each phase of mitosis in onion root tip cells. Background: onion tissue provides excellent cells to study under the microscope the main cell structures are easy to see when viewed with the microscope at medium power. The chromosomes should line up at the 'equator' of the cell during this phase it may take a little time to get used to what being 'in line' may mean, particularly in the onion root slides, think of the centromeres of each chromosome being in a relative line while the ends of the chromosomes are dangling about. This site illustrates how cells divide in different stages during mitosis using a microscope.
