Various mechanisms have been suggested for sequestering Zn ion activity in vacuoles of Zn-tolerant plants. One of these mechanisms, complexation in the vacuole with organic acids, has received some support in the recent literature. However, the lack of experimental evidence for anticipated vacuolar compartmentation and concerning the nature of metal-ligand species occurring in the vacuole has been criticized. In this study we have used computer modeling of chemical equilibria to predict the… CONTINUE READING
