Example text

Fertilization triggers the release of preformed cortical vesicles which leads to the rapid formation of a cell wall. Two further phases of cell wall secretion occur; the first involves secretion over the entire zygote (although somewhat localized at the prospective rhizoid), and the second is highly localized at the prerhizoid region. As the cell wall is formed, a turgor pressure is developed and the zygote begins to drive an electrical current through itself. A substantial part of this early current in unilaterally illuminated cells is localized calcium entry at the presumptive rhizoid 28 WATER RELATIONS IN MEMBRANE TRANSPORT IN PLANTS AND ANIMALS region.

It was noted that, as in Nitella, a small shift in turgor brought on an "exaggerated" initial response which was later largely compensated. Only the net effects of this behavior are embodied in equation (4), hence the need for the subscript referring to steady rate. Since these results indicated a self-stabilization system in higher plants, it follows that any effective growth regulator must reset the equilibrium value for the system. To study how this is done one must shift his frame of reference, temporarily, from equation (4) and consider the general features of self-regulatory kinetics.

The decline in rate for the first 15 hr (approximately) was due almost entirely to a fall in A; thereafter a rise in D was seen to accompany the continued decline in A (Fig. 5). It is concluded that growth rate can be analyzed kinetically as a self-stabilizing system following equation (5). The resetting of the stabilizing system by auxin (when compared with -IAA tissue studied in parallel) and by simple aging of excised tissue involves primarily the A term. This involves changes in the tendency for the rate to accelerate, as against changes in D, the coefficient coupling deceleration to rate.
