What would happen when eukaryotic cells are placed in hypotonic, hypertonic and isotonic solutions?
(i) When eukaryotic cells are placed in hypotonic solution (dilute solution), water molecules will enter into the cell and the cell will swell up due to endosmosis.
(ii) When eukaryotic cells are placed in hypertonic solution (concentrated solution), water molecules will move out of the cell and the cell will shrink due to exosmosis.
(iii) When eukaryotic cells are placed in isotonic solution, the water molecule will neither move out or will not go inside, hence the amount of water molecule remain the same. The cell will remain same.

Medical science took a giant step forward when it declared its capability to store stem cells. Stem cells can be used later on to treat certain diseases if need arises. Along with many Western countries. India also has the facility for storage of stem cell and for use of the same for therapy. Scientists’ are trying their best to maximize the benefit from storage of stem cells.
