      Hi
      how are you every one?
      I have a question and I was searched for it in the internet, but I did not found a convincing answer.
      The question is:
      Why the Cell wall of the plants, resembles reinforced concrete?

      please help me

      The steel rods or bars in concrete resemble cellulose fibrils of plant cell walls whereas the cement represents pectin and (I guess) hemicellulose.

      The cell wall of plant cells is strong and resembles reinforced concrete to withstand the turgor pressure of the cells.
      Turgor pressure is very important to support and maintain shape.
