Generation of action potential-type changes in response to darkening and illumination as indication of the plasma membrane proton pump status in Marchantia polymorpha

The aim of the present study was to characterise bioelectrical changes in the membrane potential of Marchantia polymorpha gametophyte cells after light/dark transitions and to determine the role of the proton pump and energy status of the M. polymorpha cells in generation of these changes. Darkening caused persistent depolarisation of the resting potential… (More)
