Regulation of electrical coupling between Arabidopsis root hairs

  title={Regulation of electrical coupling between Arabidopsis root hairs},
  author={Roger R. Lew},
Voltage clamp was used to measure the voltage dependence of cell-to-cell coupling via plasmodesmata between higher-plant cells (root hairs of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.). In addition, ionophoresis was used to introduce a variety of ions [Ca2+, inositol-trisphosphate, Li+, K+, Mg2+, ethylene glycol-bis(β-aminoethyl ether)-N,N,N′, N′-tetraacetic acid (EGTA), 1,2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N′,N′-tetraacetic acid (BAPTA), H+, and OH−] to examine whether they regulate cell-to-cell coupling… CONTINUE READING
