This report is aimed at elucidating the effect of mannitol and cold treatments on P uptake and protein phosphorylation in Lemna minor plants. Duckweed p lants were incu bated in the presence of [32P]or [33P]Pi in half-strength phosphate deprived E-medium under constant light regime for 1.5 h. Total plant protein extracts (pellet and supernatant) were then prepared and subjected to IEF x SDS-PAGE. To analyse the effect of the stresses on P uptake and protein labelling, Lemna minor plants were preincubated with 0.1, 0.5 mol · L-1 mannitol and at 4°C respectively, for 4 hours, before adding labelled orthophosphate. The results show that the general protein phosphorylation (including LHCII) is related to the level of P uptake. Radioactive phosphate incorporation is stimulated by a low concentration of mannitol (0.1 mol · L-1) but reduced by 0.5 mol · L-1 mannitol and cold stress in planta. The labelling into proteins is affected neither when stresses were applied to the plants after incubation with labelled orthophosphate, nor after in vitro protein phosphorylation. This indicates that general protein kinase activities in vivo are strictly limited by P uptake. A marked accumulation of soluble hexoses (mainly sucrose, glucose, and fructose) is observed under imposed stress, suggesting that the inhibition of P uptake in response to hyperosmotic and cold stresses is mediated by sugar accumulation in situ. However, metabolisable sugars like glucose did not alter the entry of phosphate at concentrations of 0.5 mol · L-1, showing that the chemical nature of the osmoticum influences P uptake.
