Abstract

Heat evolution from cells is interprétable as a measurement of metabolic rate1. Recent advancements in microcalorimeter design allow rapid nondestructive measurements of heat produced by as little as 4 mg dry wt plant tissues under steady state isothermal conditions. This provides a novel means for sensitive and precise evaluations of metabolic responses to varied environmental factors, chemical treatments and genetic alterations2.
