Effect of temperature on membrane fluidity and protoplast fusion

Abstract

The fusion of plant protoplasts is greatly enhanced by a rise in temperature in the presence of the fusion-inducing agents polyethylene glycol or polyvinyl alcohol. Kinetic analysis of this reaction reveals that membrane fluidity is important in regulating the fusion process.
