  Xylem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In vascular plants, xylem is one of the two types of transport tissue in plants, phloem being the other one.
The word “xylem” is derived from classical Greek ξυλον, "wood", and indeed the best known xylem tissue is wood, though it is found throughout the plant.
Fossil plants with anatomically preserved xylem are known from the Silurian (more than 400 million years ago), and trace fossils resembling individual xylem cells may be found in earlier Ordovician rocks.

 Xylem Tube EP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Xylem Tube EP is an early EP by electronic music artist Richard D. James, commonly known by his pseudonym of Aphex Twin.
It was his second release under the Aphex Twin alias on RandS Records of Belgium, the alias he used for all of his releases on this label.
Xylem Tube EP was released exclusively on vinyl in June 1992.

 Xylem   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Xylem is a complex tissue composed of xylem vessels, xylem tracheids, xylem fibres and xylem parenchyma.
The cells are arranged end to end and the cross-walls dissolve completely or have simple or complex perforation plates between successive cells.
Xylem fibres are sometimes separated by thin cross walls and the walls of xylem parenchyma are sometimes thicker than those of normal parenchyma.

 BioMed Central | Full text | Analysis of xylem sap proteins from Brassica napus
It has been shown that xylem protein patterns change in response to infection by pathogenic fungi [15,19] and there are indications that interactions between proteins and pathogens within the xylem vessels, at least partly, determine the grade of resistance or susceptibility of tomato plants towards the vascular wilt pathogen Fusarium oxysporum [15].
The secretion of proteins into xylem sap is, like for other apoplastic proteins, most likely mediated by an amino-terminal signal peptide [21,22], which has been detected in the sequences of most of the thus far known xylem sap proteins [12,16,18,19].
For the other proteases identified from the xylem sample nothing, except from the facts that they all contain specific protease domains and that they contain a secretion pathway sequence, explaining their presence in the xylem, is known.

 Water and Mineral Transport
Once in the xylem, water with the minerals that have been deposited in it (as well as occasional organic molecules supplied by the root tissue) move up in the vessels and tracheids.
If sap in the xylem is under tension, we would expect the column to snap apart if air is introduced into the xylem vessel by puncturing it.
If the water in all the xylem ducts is under tension, there should be a resulting inward pull (because of adhesion) on the walls of the ducts.
