Using 3-month-old seedlings of Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Savigny and Kandelia candel (L.) Druce, we compared species differences in ionic homeostasis control between the two non-secretor mangrove species. A high salinity (400 mM NaCl, 4 weeks) resulted in a decline of the K(+)/Na(+) ratio in root and leaf tissues, and the reduction was more pronounced in(More)
Populus euphratica is a plant model intensively studied for elucidating physiological and molecular mechanisms of salt tolerance in woody species. Several studies have shown that vacuolar potassium (K+) ion channels of the two-pore K+ (TPK) family play an important role in maintaining K+ homeostasis. Here, we cloned a putative TPK channel gene from P.(More)
eATP mediates cellular K + and Na + homeostasis in two contrasting poplar species differing in salt tolerance. Using the non-invasive micro-test technology (NMT), the effects of extracellular ATP (eATP) on salt-altered flux profiles of K+, Na+, and H+ were investigated in salt-tolerant poplar species, Populus euphratica and salt-sensitive P. popularis.
