You answered one of my questions about citric

Customer Question

Hi - you answered one of my questions about citric acid/mitochondria several months ago. I'm still looking for a citation that can clear up how the excess citric acid is introduced to the plant. I'm looking specifically for;
1. Can an excess of citric acid be introduced to mitochondria by root application?
2. Can an excess of citric acid be introduced to mitochondria through damaged plant tissue?Thanks

Hi Donna,Thanks for looking these up but neither had the information I need. The first citation dealt with nickle in root mitochondria and the second was human mitochondria. I'm looking specifically for citations of studies that deal with plant mitochondria being stressed with excess citric acid. I need to know if tissue damage or root uptake are means for subjecting the plant mitochondria to an excess of citric acid.

Sorry about that. Here is another resource that may help:

Donna - this does not deal at all with the introduction of citric acid to plant mitochondria. Do you understand my question?
Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 9 months ago.

DearCustomer

I do understand your question, however it is difficult to find reference material regarding it. Could you please send me the information that was originally given to you and I could put it through Turnitin and find the source material for you?

Thank you,

Donna

The Krebs Cycle, or Citric Acid Cycle, is used by plants to convert various citric acids into phosphates, which serve as a source of energy for the cell. The cycle relies on a delicate supply of citric acid, which it converts to citrate. Too much citric acid in the water of a plant may interrupt this cycle or lead to excess phosphates

DearCustomer

Let me see if I can get the reference material for you on this right away.

Kindest regards,

Donna

P.S. Sorry about the delay.

Donna - you gave me the site that was the source for the quote I sent you - that does not come close to answering my question.Tell you what, one more try and if you're still off base I'll ask someone else - OK?
Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 9 months ago.

DearCustomer

Perhaps I do not understand your question. Didn't you want the source material?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No - you asked me for "the information that was originally given to you" and all you did was give me the source of the information that I already had. If my question could have been answered by the quote I gave you, I wouldn't have needed to ask.My question is:
1. Can an excess of citric acid be introduced to mitochondria by root application?
2. Can an excess of citric acid be introduced to mitochondria through damaged plant tissue?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Donna - if I don't hear from you within the next couple of hours, I'll search for another person - OK?
Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 9 months ago.

DearCustomer

I have already opted out of this question. Someone else will help you. I may not even be able to respond to you now.

Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 9 months ago.

I was able to respond. Someone else will help you. I tried to help you and was not giving you the answers that you needed.
