Action potential in charophytes.

  title={Action potential in charophytes.},
  author={Mary Jane Beilby},
  journal={International review of cytology},
The plant action potential (AP) has been studied for more than half a century. The experimental system was provided mainly by the large charophyte cells, which allowed insertion of early large electrodes, manipulation of cell compartments, and inside and outside media. These early experiments were inspired by the Hodgkin and Huxley (HH) work on the squid axon and its voltage clamp techniques. Later, the patch clamping technique provided information about the ion transporters underlying the… CONTINUE READING
