Abstract Plasma membrane H⁺ATPase extracted from leaves of spinach plants induced to flower by gibberellic acid treatments or by a transfer to a photoperiod of 24 h had a lower Kmapp than that from vegetative plants grown in short days. The Kmapp obtained after inhibition by vanadate was decreased in vegetative plants and increased in induced ones showing a differential effect of this inhibitor on the kinetic properties of the enzyme between vegetative and induced plants. The phospholipid fatty acid analysis of the purified plasma membrane showed an increase of C18:1/C18:2 fatty acid ratio upon induction by light or by gibberellic acid treatments, whereas the saturated to unsaturated fatty acid ratio was kept constant. The decrease in the Kmapp observed after induction may be thus interpreted in terms of the observed changes in lipid environment.
