  1. Translocation
    • Moving carbon from different areas
    • Sink
    • Source- supply sinks near them
    • Proximity Matters
    • Fick's law applies
  2. Sink
    • tissue that is a net importer of organic nutrients
    • Seed
    • root tip
    • meristem
  3. Source
    • tissue that supplies sinks with needed organic nutrients
    • leaves
    • storage organs (rhizomes, stolon, stem base, taproots)
  4. Who discovered mass flow?
    Münch
  5. Diffusion
    • High [sucrose] in sources
    • low [sucrose] in sinks
    • Thus C flows from source to sink
  6. Facilitated Diffusion
    • Active loading of sucrose in source tissues
    • increase [sucrose] in source
    • Takes ATP b/c [sucrose] in sieve element is higher than companion cell
    • Sink tissues (such a thing as active unloading ? na)
  7. Sink tissues
    • convert sucrose to something else
    • cellulose, starch fructan
    • only diffuse against own gradient
    • kepp [sucrose] low so ∆c^^^
  8. Psiw
    • water potential
    • = 0 when no forces acting on it (ie pure water)
  9. Psis
    • solute potential
    • (-)
    • less water b/c something is in it
    • more solutes = more negative
  10. Psip
    • pressure potential
    • (+)
    • turgor pressure
    • moves solutes in phloem
  11. water potential equation

  16. Diffusion
    • Transport from high -> low concentration in the soil
    • Driven by fick's law (∆c/∆d)

  18. Anatomy of phloem sieve tube - companion cell complex
    • sieve tube
    • connected by plasmodesmata
    • Companion cells
    • together make up phoelm
  19. Sieve tube
    • sieve plate
    • alive
    • some have pores
    • contain p-protien in callose which seals ends if broken
  20. Companion Cells
    • or Transfer cells
    • lots of undulation in cell wall (more area for transport)
    • Lots of mitochondria
  21. Symplastic flow
    • stays inside the cells
    • through plasmdesmata
  22. Apoplastic flow
    • uses ATP to pump H+ outside
    • creates pH 5.5
    • Sucrose-H+ symporter brings H+ back with sucrose
    • creates high [sucrose] and low H+ inside ) pH 7
  23. active loading
    increases the ∆c and increases the rate
  24. Differences is rate of C translocation in phloem
    • C3 50 cm/hour
    • C4 200 cm/hour
  25. Distrubution of C photosynthate in legumes
    • same side of stem
    • vascular orthostichy near direct vascular connections that override proximity effects
  26. alteration of source sink in sugar beet
    • patterns altered if source sink changes imposed
    • ie leaves taken off
  27. composition of phloem from caster bean

  42. Image Upload
    • Cortex
    • stele
    • Xylem
    • Pholem
    • Endodermis with casprian strip (real barrier, only pure water through = symplastic flow)
    • Root hair
    • epidermis
  43. Depletion of P with distance from root surface
    • within 3 mm goes down drastically
    • highest rate when ratio is larger
  44. Nutrient Uptake process
    • Transport in Free Space
    • Active uptake- cortex
    • Movement from cortex -> xylem
    • Xylem -> shoot
  45. Transport in the free space of roots
    • 15% of root volume is free space
    • open to free movement of water and nutrients
    • Pectin (-) charge = CEC and holds cations
  46. Movement from cortex -> xylem
    • plasmodesmata- symplastic
    • Diffusion, cytoplasmic streaming
    • Passive (not active)
  47. Transport in the xylem -> shoot
    • Passive
    • Transpiration stream
    • Reloaded in phloem => other sink tissues
  48. Alternative sources of Nutrients
    • Mycorrihiza
    • Recycling
  49. Active Uptake
    • In cortex (w/ epidermis)
    • Takes ATP
    • [] inside cells is much greater than free space
    • carriers (gate keepers)- nutrient specific, requireed nutrients only (some times get K mix with Rb or NH4+)
  50. Mechanism of active uptake
    • ATP synthase pushes H+ outside plasmalemma
    • = apoplast @ 5.5 pH, acidic
    • Then H+ co-transports things in @ high 7-7.4 pH
  51. Kenetic relationship between nutrient uptake rate and external nutrients
    • like enzyme activity
    • add fertilizer to get at max
    • Km = 1/2 max, inverse of affinity
    • If decrease Km - max uptake can suffer
  52. affinity (/Km)
    • high = tight grasp, slow release
    • low= loose grasp fast release
    • Not good all the time, plants have to have an array of many of these
  53. How to ∆ Kinetic factors to increase uptake
    • root elongation, initial [p] from fertilizer, root diameter
    • NOT: the actual factors themselves
  54. Influence of [O] on P uptake by roots
    • at very low it goes way down
    • but otherwise is high
  55. Influence of Temp on N uptake by plant roots
    • @ 25 ˚C linear with time
    • @ 10 and 0 ˚C very very low, almost flat line
  56. Influence of soil water content on nutrient uptake
    much better at wetter soils
  57. Influence of light intensity on nutrient uptake
    high light does better b/c more root growth
  58. Root hair importance
    Unknown
  59. Nutrient recovery v. depth
    fibrous and taproots are similar and get about half from top few inches
  60. Mycorriza
    • P to plants
    • CHO to fungi
  61. Recycling
    • very important in natural systems
    • nutrients from leaves and stems to grain
    • ~20% of what cycles to roots stays
    • ~80% of what cycles to roots comes back
    • During Repro stages, veg donates alot
  62. concentration v. amount
    concentration may be constant but total amount is up because Dry matter up
  63. Grafting
    • used to get best combination
    • Fe control is in roots
