Abstract Both nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) have been widely studied in maintaining efficient photosynthesis and plant growth. However, the mechanisms underlying the photosynthetic response to their interaction remain unclear. This study assessed the effects of N and K supply on photosynthetic limitations and the corresponding changes in anatomical structures in leaves of rice (Oryza sativa L.) plants, grown hydroponically under different levels of N and K in a greenhouse. Results revealed that...

Yield loss due to insufficient potassium fertilizer supply has been well documented; however, the information about the negative effect of potassium deficiency on crop yield caused by ecophysiological determinants is not enough. A field experiment with three K treatments (severe K deficiency treatment, K1; moderate K deficiency treatment, K2; and sufficient K supply treatment, K3) was conducted to (1) assess the effects of potassium deficiency on green leaf area index (GLAI) reduction; (2) quant...

Abstract Potassium (K) deficiency is known for its impact on photosynthesis via the synthetic constraints of CO2 diffusion and assimilation. However, insights in the different responses of net photosynthetic rate (A) to K depletion inside primary metabolites, produced specifically by each organ, remain to be elucidated. Leaves and siliques of Brassica napus were investigated to clarify the responses of A, the CO2 conductance and that of main metabolism pathways under K deficiency. Leaves were fa...

Background and aims Nitrogen (N) deficiency and drought are two key limiting factors for rice production worldwide, but the relationship of drought stress with N homeostasis in rice is rarely advanced. The aim of this study was to dissect the physiological effects of drought stress on rice growth that coupled unbalanced N metabolism.

Drought stress is a worldwide issue in agricultural production. Plants respond to drought stress via a series change of physiological, cellular and molecular processes for survival. The regulation of water transport and photosynthesis plays crucial role in improving plants drought tolerance. Nitrogen (N, ammonium and nitrate) is an essential macro-nutrient for plant, and it could affect many aspects of plant growth and metabolic pathway, including water relations and photosynthesis. This review ...

The photosynthetic rate increases under high-N supply, resulting in a large CO2 transport conductance in mesophyll cells. It is less known that water movement is affected by nitrogen supply in leaves. This study investigated whether the expression of aquaporin and water transport were affected by low-N (0.7 mM) and high-N (7 mM) concentrations in the hydroponic culture of four rice varieties: (1) Shanyou 63 (SY63), a hybrid variant of the indica species; (2) Yangdao 6 (YD6), a variant of indica ...

Aquaporins (AQPs) are integral membrane proteins facilitating the transport of water and some small neutral molecules across cell membranes. In past years, much effort has been made to reveal the location of AQPs as well as their function in water transport, photosynthetic processes, and stress responses in higher plants. In the present review, we paid attention to the character of AQPs in determining carbon and nitrogen status. The role of AQPs during photosynthesis is characterized as its func...
