In plant membrane transport, active transport of [H.sup.+] forms the driving force for other ion fluxes (including [Zn.sup.++] and [Cd.sup.++]), therefore, in this initial report of our on-going study, we describe a comparison of [H.sup.+] fluxes associated with roots of A.
Thus, in macromolecular systems the reduction of linear intermediate transitions of multistate diagrams to yield simpler models has provided a tool, for instance, to understand the finding of simple kinetic behaviors in complex membrane transport systems [19].
