Table of Contents

The Plant Plasma Membrane; Editors; Preface; Contents; Section I Plasma Membrane Structure and Basic Functions; Section II Plasma Membrane Transporters; Section III Signal Transduction at the Plasma Membrane; Index. In plant cells, the plasma membrane is a highly elaborated structure that functions as the point of exchange with adjoining cells, cell walls and the external environment. Transactions at the plasma membrane include uptake of water and essential mineral nutrients, gas exchange, movement of metabolites, transport and perception of signaling molecules, and initial responses to external biota. Selective transporters control the rates and direction of small molecule movement across the membrane barrier and manipulate the turgor that maintains plant form and drives plant cell expansion. The plasma.
