About this book

Explores the molecular, biochemical, functional, structural, and developmental mechanisms of pH in plant growth, as well as examining the role of pH in plant symplasm, plant apoplasm, the rhizosphere, the ecosystem, and in plant interaction with biotic and abiotic environments.


Contents

H+-ATPases in the plasma membrane - physiology and molecular biology; H+-ATPase and H+-PPase in the vacuolar membrane - physiology and molecular biology; the cytoplasmic pH stat; confocal pH topography in plant cells - shifts of proton distributioninvolved in plant signalling; pH as a signal and regulator of membrane transport; the role of the apoplastic pH on cell wall extension and cell enlargement; mechanisms and physiological roles of proton movements in plant thylakoid membranes; dynamics ofH+ fluxes in mitochondrial membrane; H+ fluxes in nitrogen assimilation by plants.
