Using apoplastic voltage- and ion selective microprobes, in barley leaves action potentials (APs) have been measured, which propagate acropetally as well as basipetally from leaf to leaf or from root to leaf following the application of mild salt stress (e.g. 30–50 mM KCl or NH4Cl) or amino acids (e.g. 1 mM glutamic acid or 5 mM GABA). Voltage changes were biphasic, followed an ‘all-or-none’ characteristic, and propagated at 20–30 cm min−1 irrespective of the direction. With the salt-induced… Expand
System Potentials, a Novel Electrical Long-Distance Apoplastic Signal in Plants, Induced by Wounding1
TLDR
It is suggested that these wound-induced “system potentials” represent a new type of electrical long-distance signaling in higher plants, and all of the investigated ion movements occur after the voltage change begins. Expand
Effect of ion channel blockers and H+-ATPase inhibitors on generation of local electrical response in a cucumber leaf
Electric potential difference was measured with extracellular electrodes between the leaf surface of 2-week-old cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) plants and soil solution. When the leaf region with aExpand
Proton cellular influx as a probable mechanism of variation potential influence on photosynthesis in pea.
TLDR
It was showed that proton cellular influx was the probable mechanism of VP's influence on photosynthesis in pea, and its magnitude depended on the magnitude of pH change. Expand
Heat-induced electrical signals affect cytoplasmic and apoplastic pH as well as photosynthesis during propagation through the maize leaf.
TLDR
Photochemical quantum yield of isolated chloroplasts was strongly affected by pH changes in the surrounding medium, indicating a putative direct influence of electrical signalling via changes of cytosolic pH on leaf photosynthesis. Expand
Accession-dependent action potentials in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Part of Arabidopsis excitability in AP responses is genetically pre-determined, and Col was the most excitable accession, followed by Ws, and Ler was the least excitable; this corresponded well with voltage elicited action potentials. Expand
Inactivation of H+-ATPase Participates in the Influence of Variation Potential on Photosynthesis and Respiration in Peas
TLDR
The results support the effect of H+-ATPase inactivation on VP-induced photosynthetic and respiratory responses in intact seedlings. Expand
The Role of Ion Channels in Plant Salt Tolerance
Salinisation of agricultural land threatens world food production because it exposes crops to low water potential and high concentration of toxic ions in the soil. In particular, all major crops areExpand
Variation potential in higher plants: Mechanisms of generation and propagation
TLDR
It is probable that VP is a local electrical response induced by propagation of hydraulic wave and (or) chemical agent, and combination of hydraulic and chemical signals is the probable mechanism of VP propagation. Expand
Glutamate induces series of action potentials and a decrease in circumnutation rate in Helianthus annuus.
TLDR
The APs initiated and propagating in the sunflower stem after Glu injection testify the existence of a Glu perception system in vascular plants and suggest its involvement in electrical, long-distance signaling. Expand
Glutamate-Induced Electrical and Calcium Signals in the Moss Physcomitrella patens.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that electrical but not calcium signals can be true carriers of information in long-distance signaling in Physcomitrella, one of the first plant which colonized lands. Expand

The role of ion fluxes in Nod factor signalling in Medicago sativa
TLDR
The observations that the Ca2+ ionophore A23187 mimicks the Nod factor response, and that theCa2+ channel antagonist nifedipine inhibits this response, support the idea that Ca2+, plays a primary role in the transduction of the NOD signal in alfalfa. Expand
Action potentials in maize sieve tubes change phloem translocation
TLDR
The inhibition of phloem translocation caused by electric- and cold-shock in mature leaves of maize was studied and it was shown that potassium and chloride diminished about 3-fold after stimulation while the amount of cytoplasmic calcium may have increased. Expand
Action potentials as multifunctional signals in plants: a unifying hypothesis to explain apparently disparate wound responses
Abstract I suggest that action potentials, which occur in most, if not all, plants, play a major role in intercellular and intracellular communication. Long-distance communication is achieved throughExpand
Repetitive action potentials induced in Arabidopsis thaliana leaves by wounding and potassium chloride application
TLDR
The efficiency of the prick-and-drop treatment method (> 90 %) to induce spontaneous APs in A. thaliana is demonstrated, suggesting that the diffusion of the KCl solution into the apoplastic space through the wounding area is essential. Expand
Root-to-shoot signalling: apoplastic alkalinization, a general stress response and defence factor in barley (Hordeum vulgare)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in susceptible barley, pretreatment with the resistance-inducing chemical benzo- (1,2,3)thiadiazole-7-carbothioic acid S-methyl ester markedly enhances this pH response, consistent with previous finding that apoplastic alkalinization is related to the degree of resistance towards this fungus.

Action potentials and variation potentials in sunflower: An analysis of their relationships and distinguishing characteristics
TLDR
Results suggest that APs are “genuine” electrical signals involving voltage-gated ion channels or pumps, which can be evoked directly by electrical stimulation or indirectly by changes in membrane potential occurring during the VP or after the light-off stimulus. Expand
The pathway for systemic electrical signal conduction in the wounded tomato plant
TLDR
It was concluded that the electrical signal possibly linking a wound stimulus in a cotyledon with the induction of systemic proteinase inhibitor synthesis was propagated in the sieve-tube element/companion cell complex. Expand
Hydraulic and electrical transmission of wound-induced signals in Vitis vinifera
TLDR
Results support the hypothesis that both ion channels and pumps are involved in variation potential depolarisation and demonstrate that action and variation potentials differ both in their mechanism of propagation and electrogenic nature. Expand

TLDR
The parallels between the process of touch-perception in freshwater Chara, and the turgor-regulating response to osmotic shock in salt-tolerant Lamprothamnium are drawn, showing how mechanoperception occurs in higher plants. Expand
