Anoxia tolerance in the aquatic monocot Potamogeton pectinatus absence of oxygen stimulates elongation in association with an unusually large pasteur effect.

Abstract:

Elongation by stems of overwintered tubers of Potamogeton pectinatus (L.) is strongly promoted over several days by oxygen-free conditions. Characteristics of the respiration underpinning this unusual response were examined. Anaerobic plants produced ethanol and CO(2) in approximately equimolar amounts, indicating that glycolysis coupled to alcoholic fermentation was the principal CO(2)-producing respiratory pathway. Rates of CO(2) evolution by aerobic and anaerobic whole plants (shoot and tu...
