Determination of cell water-relation parameters using the pressure probe: extended theory and practice of the pressure-clamp technique

Abstract:

The aim of the present study was to develop and test an extended theory of the pressure-clamp technique that would allow the estimation of additional cell water-relation parameters using the pressure probe. It was assumed that intercellular water transport (vacuole → vacuole) occurs via a composite 'membrane' comprising the tonoplast, cytoplasm, plasma membrane, plasmodesmata and cell wall and that solute transport across the micropipette tip of the probe is dominated by convection. The exten...
