The effect of a direct electric current on electrolyte transport through plant tissues was studied by applying it to 10-mm segments of the mesocotyls of etiolated maize seedlings, similar segments of one-year linden shoots with the normal conducting system and without vascular bundles, and isolated elements of the xylem and cell wall segments. At current densities of 9–38 μA/mm2 (10–20 V), electrolyte solutions in plant tissues always moved toward the cathode. The results suggest that…

Cytoplasmic Electric Fields and Electroosmosis: Possible Solution for the Paradoxes of the Intracellular Transport of Biomolecules
TLDR
Two mathematical models describing the role of electroosmosis in the transport of negatively charged messenger proteins to the negatively charged nucleus and in the recovery of the fluorescence after photobleaching are presented.
Determination of zeta-potential in rat organotypic hippocampal cultures.
TLDR
A simple method is developed for determining zeta in tissue and simple dimensional arguments show that electroosmotic flow is potentially as important as diffusion in molecular transport.
Heat transfer analysis for EMHD peristalsis of ionic-nanofluids via curved channel with Joule dissipation and Hall effects.
TLDR
Graphical results demonstrated that the thermal transmission rate is augmented by increasing the Hartmann number, Brinkman number, and Debye-Huckel parameter while decreases for zeta potential ratio, Joule dissipation parameter, and electro-osmotic velocity.

TLDR
Freshly excised green sunflower stems showed water absorption concurrently in both ends with the rates of water movement variously influenced by air speed, temperature, and light, and biopotential changes were closely correlated with changes in water movement.

TLDR
An improved technique for measuring electric potential differences on the etiolated Avena .coleoptile is described and it is suggested that the electric wave may be useful as a bioassay for auxin.

THE BIO-ELECTRIC POTENTIALS OF PLANTS AND THEIR FUNCTIONAL SIGNIFICANCE: I. AN ELECTROKINETIC THEORY OF TRANSPORT
TLDR
A re-examination of electro-osmosis and streaming potentials in xylem and phloem vessels suggests that the bio-electrical forces are sufficiently large in magnitude to cause transport and that they certainly operate in a direction to assist it.

TLDR
It is estimated that electroosmosis cannot account for more than 1 per cent of the water movement (or turgor) in Nitella cells, which confirms the osmotic, rather than the Electroosmotic nature of theWater movement.

TLDR
This chapter deals with the determination and meaning of a very important membrane parameter—the reflection coefficient for a solute, which is particularly important for osmosis through leaky membranes.
The polar transport of auxin and vein patterns in plants
TLDR
It is shown that discrete veins will form provided that the transport permeability increases rapidly enough with flux, and given that the movement of auxin is not too polar, in the sense that there is a substantial amount of diffusive movement of Auxin in addition to polar transport.
