The application of 31P nuclear magnetic resonance to higher plant tissue: II. Detection of intracellular changes
Kime MJ., Ratcliffe RG., Loughman BC.
3I P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra are used to monitor intracellular changes in sections of potato tuber (Solarium tuberosum), maize root tips (Zea mays) and the roots of single maize seedlings. Intracellular changes that result from the uptake of inorganic phosphate, D-mannose, the spectroscopic broadening probe Mn 2 + and 2, 4-dinitrophenol are described. It is concluded that NMR provides a powerful, direct method for following intracellular changes in plant tissues. © 1982 Oxford University Press.
