    Plasmolysis is the contraction of a cell due to the loss of water through osmosis in plants and bacteria.

    Cytolysis, or osmotic lysis, occurs when a cell bursts due to an osmotic imbalance that has caused excess water to move into the cell.

    Cytolysis is water moving into the cell causes it to burst. Plasmolysis is water leaving the cell through osmosis causing it to contract.

    Cytolysis is when the cell swells up because water is getting into it, a result of osmosis.

    Plasmolysis is when the cell bursts because turgor pressure is to much

    Cytolysis-When the cell swells up because water is getting into it through osmosis.

    Plasmolysis-When the cell bursts because turgor pressure is to big.
