Dear student

The specialized thickening, known as the Casparian strip, ensures that in the root, the water and nutrients that enter thestelepass through the symplast—specifically through the periclinal surfaces of the plasma membrane of the endodermal cells, which are specialized forion transport

Casparian stripCasparian strip A band of waterproof, corky tissue that is found on the side and walls of the endodermis of roots. The strip prevents water from entering the pericycle except through the cytoplasm of endodermal cells; this may be important in producing root pressure

The salient feature of the endodermis is a waterproof barrier known as the Casparian strip. Differentiated endodermal cells localize lignin between them so that water and solutes must traverse the cells as opposed to passing between them. This allows for selective uptake of solutes.
