  • Descrição: Electron paramagnetic resonance-spectroscopic studies on spin-labeled purified tonoplast membranes showed that in the obligate crassulacean-acid-metabolism (CAM) plant Kalanchoë daigremontiana Hamet et Perr. the fluidity of the tonoplast decreased during acclimation to higher temperatures. This phenotypic change in tonoplast fluidity was paralleled by a decrease in the mobilization of malic acid from the vacuoles during CAM in the light. The shift from the C 3 to the CAM mode of photosynthesis in the facultative CAM plant Mesembryanthemum crystallinum L. also led to a decrease in the fluidity of the tonoplast membrane. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the ability to store malic acid during CAM in the vacuoles depends largely on the actual fluidity of the tonoplast membrane.
