Electrical coupling between adjacent cells of Elodea canadensis has been demonstrated using a microelectrode technique in which the membrane potentials were recorded during the passage of a current pulse from the vacuole of one cell to the external solution. The changes in membrane potential resulting from the passage of the current may be simulated by an equivalent circuit in which the tonoplast:plasmalemma:plasmodesmata resistances are in the ratio 1.0:5.6:2.2. On this basis, the specific… CONTINUE READING
