In a study of membrane potential properties of giant cells induced in the roots of Impatiens balsamina by a rootknot nematode, trains of action potential-like fluctuations were recorded. Giant cells are multinucleate transfer cells, and it is suggested that the occurrence of action potentials may be characteristic of transfer cells.
