Proton pumps produce electrical potential differences and differences in pH across the plasma membrane of cells which drive secondary ion transport through sym- and antiporters. We used the patch-clamp technique to characterize an H(+)-pump in the xylem parenchyma of barley roots. This cell type is of special interest with respect to xylem loading. Since it… CONTINUE READING
