Influx....The most widely studied of these transport processes is the primary uptake process in plant roots by which inorganic ions are transferred from an external solution across the plasmalemma into the cell cytoplasm.
The efflux of sodium (Na(+)) ions across the plasma membrane of plant root cells into the external medium is surprisingly poorly understood. Nevertheless, Na(+) efflux is widely regarded as a major mechanism by which plants restrain the rise of Na(+) concentrations in the cytosolic
