We investigated the interaction of rhizospheric nitric oxide (NO) concentration (i.e., low, ambient, or high) and soil N availability (i.e., low or high) with organic and inorganic N uptake by fine roots of Pinus sylvestris L. seedlings by (15) N feeding experiments under controlled conditions. N metabolites in fine roots were analysed to link N uptake to N nutrition. NO affected N uptake depending on N source and soil N availability. The suppression of nitrate uptake in the presence of ammonium and glutamine was overruled by high NO. The effects of NO on N uptake with increasing N availability showed different patterns: (1) increasing N uptake regardless of NO concentration (i.e., ammonium), (2) increasing N uptake only with high NO concentration (i.e., nitrate and arginine), and (3) decreasing N uptake (i.e., glutamine). At low N availability and high NO nitrate accumulated in the roots indicating insufficient substrates for nitrate reduction or its storage in root vacuoles. Individual amino acid concentrations were negatively affected with increasing NO (i.e., asparagine and glutamine with low, serine and proline with high N availability). In conclusion, this study provides first evidence that NO affects N uptake and metabolism in a conifer. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
