Abstract

The effects of abscisic acid (ABA) on growth, uptake and translocation of potassium ions, K+,Mg2+‐ATPase activity and transpiration were investigated in young wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. Martonvásári‐8) plants grown at different K+ supplies. Long‐term treatment with ABA (10 μM) reduced growth in high‐K+ plants, but had less effect under low‐K+ conditions. K+(86Rb) uptake was inhibited by about 70 and 40% in low‐ and high‐K+ plants, respectively. The stimulation by K+ of the Mg2+‐ATPase activity in the root microsomal fraction was lost with ABA treatment. It is suggested that the inhibitory effect of ABA on K+ uptake may be related to this effects on the K+,Mg2+‐ATPase. Translocation of K+ to the shoot was inhibited in low‐K+ plants only, and it was not affected in high‐K+ plants. In parallel to this, ABA treatment reduced transpiration by about 50% in low‐K+ plants, whereas a much smaller effect was seen in high‐K+ plants. These observations suggest that the regulation by ABA of the stomatal movements is strongly counteracted by high‐K+ status.
