Intracellular pH stability in the aquatic resurrection plant Chamaegigas intrepidus in the extreme environmental conditions that characterize its natural habitat

Abstract:

Chamaegigas intrepidus Dinter (syn. Lindernia intrepidus (Dinter) Oberm.) is a poikilohydric aquatic plant that lives in rock pools on granitic outcrops in Central Namibia. The pools are only filled intermittently during the summer rains, and the plants can pass through 15-20 rehydration/dehydration cycles during a single wet season. Rehydrated plants also have to cope with substantial diurnal fluctuations in the pool pH as a result of photosynthetic CO2 uptake. We have used in vivo 31P NMR s...
