Hydrodynamics of steady state phloem transport with radial leakage of solute.

Long-distance phloem transport occurs under a pressure gradient generated by the osmotic exchange of water associated with solute exchange in source a...

Leaf structure in relation to solute transport and phloem loading in Zea mays L.
Small and intermediate (longitudinal) vascular bundles of the Zea mays leaf are surrounded by chlorenchymatous bundle sheaths and consist of one or two vessels, variable numbers of vascular parenchyma cells, and two or more sieve tubes some of which

Phloem transport and drought.
Drought challenges plant water uptake and the vascular system. In the xylem it causes embolism that impairs water transport from the soil to the leaves and, if uncontrolled, may even lead to plant mortality via hydraulic failure. What happens in the

Macroscopic liquid-state molecular hydrodynamics.
Experimental evidence and theoretical modeling suggest that piles of confined, high-restitution grains, subject to low-amplitude vibration, can serve as experimentally-accessible analogs for studying a range of liquid-state molecular hydrodynamic pro

Improved dark blood imaging of the heart using radial balanced steady-state free precession.
Dark blood imaging of the heart is conventionally performed using a breath-hold, dual-inversion Cartesian fast spin-echo pulse sequence. Our aim was to develop a faster, more flexible approach that would be less motion-sensitive and provide better im

Generating multiple contrasts using single-shot radial T1 sensitive and insensitive steady-state imaging.
Recently, the (Resolution Enhanced-) T1 insensitive steady-state imaging (TOSSI) approach has been proposed for the fast acquisition of T2 -weighted images. This has been achieved by balanced steady-state free precession (bSSFP) imaging between unequ

Proton co-transport of sugars in phloem loading.
Loading of (14)C-labelled sugars from the hollow petiole of Ricinus communis L. was stimulated by potassium and by low pH in that both the (14)C-activity and the sugar concentration of phloem sap collected from a nearby incision increased. A pH drop

Modeling solute transport by DLA in soils of northeastern Egypt.
Arid soils in Egypt display large variability in solute transport properties, causing problems in soil management. To characterize this variability, dye infiltration experiments were conducted on four plots representing three main soil types in north

Solvent-Probe Spectra.
Experimental studies of solvation dynamics in liquids invariably ask how changing a solute from its electronic ground state to an electronically excited state affects a solution's dynamics. With traditional time-dependent-fluorescence experiments, th

On the volume-flow mechanism of phloem transport.
A steady-state model of solution flow in a tubular semipermeable membrane is developed for an arbitrary distribution of solute sources and sinks along the translocation path. It is demonstrated that the volume-flow mechanism of phloem transport depen
