It all starts at the roots. Plants receive nutrients from two different systems — starting in the leaves and is responsible for photosynthesis. The other starts at the roots and moving water with dissolved ions through the system until filled. Protein is one of the nutrients that start at the roots and the way up.
Plants are autotrophs
Plants are autotrophs. Unlike animals that must get their food from external sources such as plants and other animals, plants are capable of producing their own. Plants take up the basic elements of the outside world and bring them into their bodies, where they are starches and proteins that are used by the plant or animal, it eats converted.
Nitrogen and bacteria
Protein consisting of nitrate, a form of nitrogen, which was fixed by microorganisms prepared. Plants can not directly nitrogen, so they rely on bacteria to convert nitrogen into a form they can use. These bacteria called in the vicinity of the roots of the plants or in specific structures are nodules on the roots. The bacteria in nodules have formed a symbiotic relationship with the plants, where they replace nitrogen used for sugar from the plant.
Nitrates and Amino Acids
Nitrate was added to the plant through the roots, pulled into the plant, where they are converted to 20 different amino acids. These amino acids are turned into proteins in specific structures in the cells, the so-called ribosomes. These structures at four locations in the plant are located. Some float in the cytoplasm of cells, free, while others are attached to the surface of the endoplasmic reticulum, the mitochondria and chloroplasts.
Contained on the ribosomes in the endoplasmic reticulum, the proteins are sent to the Golgi apparatus. The Golgi apparatus sorts of such proteins for distribution throughout the facility, where they are used to form new structures for further nutrient transport, and basic metabolic processes.
