Oxygen is a vital substrate for plant energy metabolism. Since plants do not have a sophisticated mechanism to deliver oxygen to those sites where it is actually needed, a plant cell has to continuously cope with changes of the oxygen tension within the tissue. The actual internal oxygen concentration will depend on the resistance for oxygen diffusion through the tissue, as well as on the actual respiratory activity. This paper discusses the current state of knowledge on the regulation of… CONTINUE READING
