Kinetics and osmoregulation of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fiber growth (primarily extension) have been studied. Growth is dependent on turgor pressure in the fiber. It is inhibited when a decrease in the water potential of the culture medium due to an addition of Carbowax 6000, equals the turgor pressure of the fiber. Potassium and malate accumulate in the fiber and reach peak levels when the growth rate is highest. Maximum concentrations of potassium and malate reached in the fiber can… Expand
