The respiration of excised hypocotyls and of isolated hypocotyl mitochondria from soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr., var. Wayne] was determined in various concentrations of sucrose and potassium chloride. Hypocotyl oxygen uptake declined with increasing solute concentration; no specific effects of either solute were apparent. Mitochondrial state III respiration was strongly inhibited as the solute concentrations were raised and there was in addition a specific inhibitory effect of the salt. State… CONTINUE READING
