  • It is possible that a proportion of ammonium fed to maize roots enters the symplast at the endodermis and is incorporated into amino acids within the pericycle which results in it becoming acidotic.
  • Instead, it appears that there is a barrier to movement between the post-phloem symplast and the nucellus.

  • It is therefore probable that much of the increase in sugars during sub-zero hardening was symplastic.
