The mechanism of aluminium-induced inhibition of root elongation is still not well understood. It is a matter of debate whether the primary lesions of Al toxicity are apoplastic or symplastic. The present paper summarises experimental evidence which offers new avenues in the understanding of Al toxicity and resistance in maize. Application of Al for 1 h to individual 1 mm sections of the root apex only inhibited root elongation if applied to the first 3 apical mm. The most Al-sensitive apical… CONTINUE READING
