We tested the hypothesis (J.-H. Xia and P.H. Saglio [1992] Plant Physiol 100: 40-46) that the enhanced ability of maize (Zea mays) root tips to survive anoxia, elicited by a 4-h exposure to 3% O2 ("acclimation"), is due to less cytoplasmic acidosis early in anoxia. Cytoplasmic pH and fermentation reactions were monitored in excised and intact (attached) maize root tips by simultaneous in vivo 13C- and 31P-NMR spectroscopy. We demonstrate that both excised and intact acclimated root tips have… CONTINUE READING
