Using the short-lived radiotracer 13 N, we examined the hypothesis that toxic, futile ammonia/ammonium (NH3/NH4 + ) fluxes at high external concentrations are mediated by ammonia-transporting aquaporins in roots of intact barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) plants. Effects of the aquaporin inhibitors zinc, copper, mercury, gold, silver, hydrogen peroxide, propionic… CONTINUE READING
