Phloem loading is a critical process in plant physiology. The potential of regulating the translocation of photoassimilates from source to sink tissues represents an opportunity to increase crop yield. Pyrophosphate homeostasis is crucial for normal phloem function in apoplasmic loaders. The involvement of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) type I(More)
Previous literature has shown the presence of a plasma membrane (PM) localized type I H(+)-PPase in sieve elements of Ricinus communis. Unfortunately, the physiological relevance of these findings remains obscure due to the lack of genetic and molecular reagents to study R. communis. The availability of H(+)-PPase gain and loss-of-function mutants in(More)
Plant nitrate (NO3(-)) acquisition depends on the combined activities of root high- and low-affinity NO3(-) transporters and the proton gradient generated by the plasma membrane H(+)-ATPase. These processes are coordinated with photosynthesis and the carbon status of the plant. Here, we present the characterization of romaine lettuce (Lactuca sativa(More)
