Increased vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) exchange activity in Salicornia bigelovii Torr. in response to NaCl.


Shoots of the halophyte Salicornia bigelovii are larger and more succulent when grown in highly saline environments. This increased growth and water uptake has been correlated with a large and specific cellular accumulation of sodium. In glycophytes, sensitivity to salt has been associated with an inability to remove sodium ions effectively from the… (More)
