Abstract

The widespread presence of an ATP-driven H+ pump operating at the plasmalemma of higher plant cells is well established by in vivo and by in vitro work (Marrè and Ballarin-Denti, 1985). In recent investigations attention has been centered on the relationships between the activity at this pump, the activity of the biochemical PEP-malate pH-stat and the regulation of intracellular pH (Marrè et al., 1986 b).
