AMINO-ACID INFLUX AT THE SOIL-ROOT INTERFACE OF ZEA-MAYS L AND ITS IMPLICATIONS IN THE RHIZOSPHERE

Abstract:

The aim of the study was to investigate the ability of intact Zea mays. L. roots to regulate the amount of free amino-acids present in the rhizosphere. Using metabolic inhibitors it was demonstrated that the release of amino-acids from the root occurred by passive diffusion, whilst free amino-acids outside the root could be re-captured by an active transport mechanism. The influx of amino-acids into the root was shown to be relatively independent of spatial location along the root and was lit...
