Commelina communis (Asiatic Dayflower)
Release of malate from epidermal strips during stomatal closure.
in Plant Physiology 61, 474–475 – DOI: https://doi.org/10.1104/pp.61.3.474 –
Isolated epidermal strips of Vicia faba and Commelina communis release malate into their bathing medium when stomata close. This release was largest (about 0.6 of the initial malate content) when epidermal strips of C. communis were floated on 10−5 M (±)-abscisic acid.
