Changes of vacuolar pH in hair cells of young rice (Oryza sativa L.) and maize (Zea mays L.) roots were measured after ammonia application at various levels of external pH. After loading the pH-sensitive, fluorescent dye Oregon green 488 carboxylic acid 6-isomer into the vacuoles of root hairs, ratiometric pH data of high statistical significance were obtained from root hair populations comprising hundreds of cells. The pH of the vacuole at external pH 5.0 was 5.32 ± 0.08 (±SD, n= 15) and 5.41… CONTINUE READING
