Thus, this will lead to diffusion out of red pigments from the internal cell of beetroot into the environment or surrounding through cell membrane.
This means that the beetroot samples release more dye at higher temperatures. Introduction: Beetroot contains red pigments called betalains, located within the cell vacuole. Thus, the carrier protein is used to transport these substance sometimes with help of Adenosine Triphosphate ATP.
The complex and varied design of the phospholipid bilayer allows the membrane to serve the variety of specific functions required by different types of cells.
By just washing it and simply rinse it with distilled water, the dye might still be on the surface of the beetroot.
In this experiment I aim to find out the relationship between the leakage of red pigment from a beetroot cell and the surface area. This is because, some of the denatured proteins are blocking the holes made at first resulting low flow —out of red pigments from the internal cell into the surrounding.
