  • A number of lines of evidence (Mr, number of ‐OH groups, measured fluxes at inner mitochondrial membranes) suggest the intrinsic PSi(OH)4 of about 10‐10 m s‐1 in the plant cell plasmalemma. While relatively low, such a PSi(OH)4 could maintain the intracellular concentration of Si(OH)4 equal to that in the medium for a phytoplankton cell of 5 μm radius growing with a generation time of 24 h. Such passive entry could not account for SiO, precipitation such as is required for scale (Chrysophyceae… CONTINUE READING
