Nitrate addition alleviates ammonium toxicity without lessening ammonium accumulation, organic acid depletion and inorganic cation depletion in Arabidopsis thaliana shoots.

When ammonium is the sole nitrogen (N) source, plant growth is suppressed compared with the situation where nitrate is the N source. This is commonly referred to as ammonium toxicity. It is widely known that a combination of nitrate and ammonium as N source alleviates this ammonium toxicity (nitrate-dependent alleviation of ammonium toxicity), but the… (More)
