Comments P.8 left column top paragraph: "In addition to the contribution of their structural elements, the mechanical properties of cells largely depend on osmotic pressure commonly in the range of 2,300–6,800mmHg (0.3–0.9MPa) in growing cells (primary source) and estimated at up to 75,000–375,000mmHg (10–50MPa) for wall tensile stresses."
