Chara longifolia is a salt-tolerant Charophyte which regulates its turgor inresponse to osmotic stress. Membrane depolarization, in creased membrane conductance, and cessation of cytoplasmic streaming (due to increase in cytoplasmic Ca2+) precede regulation in response to hypotonic stress. Measurements of these three parameters are presented here with simultaneous turgor measurements. Variability in the occurrence, rate and extent of turgor regulation in individual cells was correlated with… CONTINUE READING
