Kinetics of the H+-ATPase from dry and 5-hours-imbibed maize embryos in its native, solubilized, and reconstituted forms.

Membranes undergo recovery upon rehydration in seed germination. Previous work has described that the plasma membrane H+-ATPase from maize embryos adopts two different forms at 0 and 5 h of imbibition. We investigated how the kinetics of these two forms could be affected by alterations in the plasma membrane (PM). In comparison to the 0-h, PMs from the 5-h… CONTINUE READING
