Abstract:

Simultaneous, separate determinations of radiocalcium transport in paired corn root segments were demonstrated by a perfusion bridge. Investigations with this new apparatus revealed an heretofore unknown transient in the tracer movement during the first 2 hours after excision. Investigations of the transient suggests that it is a result of woulding and repair, coupled with certain other metabolically mediated processes in organized root tissue. Author
