Early effects of boron deficiency on membrane function in higher plants

Abstract:

The transfer of plants to boron-free solutions induces rapid responses in membrane functions without necessarily affecting root growth and anatomy. In sunflowers (Helianthus annuus), root growth slows within 3-6 h. However in maize (Zea mays), no growth effects are apparent after more than 30 h without boron (-B). In both species early disturbances in ion uptake and cell wall deposition are seen.

Ultrastructural studies on sunflower root tips after 5.5 h or 3 d -B...
