Caption: Arabidopsis root tip. Fluorescent light micrograph of in a root tip and root cap of a thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana) plant. The cells' cytoplasm has been labelled with green fluorescent protein and the cells' vacuoles have been labelled with red fluorescent protein. The root tip is the growing part of the root. It is covered by the root cap (very bottom left), a protective cover that secretes mucilage and is continually sloughed off. The cells to be sloughed off undergo apoptosis, or 'programmed cell death'. Cells undergoing this process have an enlarged vacuole (red).
