Electrical transmembrane potential differences and resistances in different tissues of intact root tips of Lepidium sativum L. were investigated in a humid atmosphere by conventional glass-microelectrode techniques with the reference electrode at the surface (apoplast) of the root. The resting potential (inside negative) in cells of the root cap rose from-80 mV in external cell layers (secretion cells) to approx.-140 mV in central cells (statocytes). Measurements of the electric input… CONTINUE READING
