In order to account for accumulation of metabolites in plant vacuoles, the existence of a proton-pumping ATPase has been widely invoked in the literature. In a complex system like plant vacuoles, the ATP hydrolysis may be catalyzed not only by ATPases but also by some other enzymes not necessarily implicated in an energization process of the tonoplast.
