Xylem is the plant vascular tissue responsible for raw sap conduction. It comprises two main types of cells that are derived from differentiating cambium: tracheary elements (TEs) and fibres that have conducting and mechanical role, respectively. Xylem formation is a developmental process and is under strict hormonal control involving a stew of phytohormones including auxin, cytokinin and ethylene.
