Function, intracellular localization and the importance in salt tolerance of a vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiporter from rice.
We examined the function and intracellular localization of the product of the Na(+)/H(+) antiporter gene (OsNHX1) cloned from rice (Oryza sativa). OsNHX1 has the ability to suppress Na(+), Li(+) andExpand

Molecular cloning and expression of the Na+/H+ exchanger gene in Oryza sativa.
Na+/H+ exchanger catalyzes the countertransport of Na+ and H+ across membranes. We isolated a rice cDNA clone the deduced amino acid sequence of which had homology with a putative Na+/H+ exchanger inExpand

Effect of salt and osmotic stresses on the expression of genes for the vacuolar H+-pyrophosphatase, H+-ATPase subunit A, and Na+/H+ antiporter from barley.
Two cDNA clones encoding vacuolar H+-inorganic pyrophosphatase (HVP1 and HVP10), one clone encoding the catalytic subunit (68 kDa) of vacuolar H+-ATPase (HvVHA-A), and one clone encoding vacuolarExpand

Molecular and functional analyses of rice NHX-type Na+/H+ antiporter genes
We previously cloned a vacuolar Na+/H+ antiporter gene (OsNHX1) from rice (Oryza sativa). Here we identified four additional NHX-type antiporter genes in rice (OsNHX2 through OsNHX5) and performedExpand

Molecular cloning, functional expression and subcellular localization of two putative vacuolar voltage-gated chloride channels in rice (Oryza sativa L.).
We isolated two cDNA clones (OsCLC-1 and OsCLC-2) homologous to tobacco CLC-Nt1, which encodes a voltage-gated chloride channel, from rice (Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica, cv. Nipponbare). The deducedExpand

Rice Shaker Potassium Channel OsKAT1 Confers Tolerance to Salinity Stress on Yeast and Rice Cells1[OA]
We screened a rice (Oryza sativa L. ‘Nipponbare’) full-length cDNA expression library through functional complementation in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) to find novel cation transporters involvedExpand

Na+/H+ Antiporter in Tonoplast Vesicles from Rice Roots
The N a + / H + antiporter in vacuolar membranes transports Na + from the cytoplasm to vacuoles using a pH gradient generated by proton pumps; it is considered to be related to salinity tolerance.Expand

Effects of ABA, auxin, and gibberellin on the expression of genes for vacuolar H+ -inorganic pyrophosphatase, H+ -ATPase subunit A, and Na+/H+ antiporter in barley.
We analyzed the effects of ABA, auxin, and gibberellin on the expression of two genes (HVP1 and HVP10) for vacuolar H(+)-inorganic pyrophosphatase (EC 3.6.1.1) and one (HvVHA-A) for the catalyticExpand

Responses to umami substances in taste bud cells innervated by the chorda tympani and glossopharyngeal nerves.
The chorda tympani (CT) and glossopharyngeal (GL) nerves of several mammalian species respond differently to umami substances (US) such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), disodium 5'-inosinate (IMP) andExpand

A novel mutant acetolactate synthase gene from rice cells, which confers resistance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides
A two-point mutated gene of acetolactate synthase (ALS) was isolated from rice cells, which was cultured together with an ALS-inhibiting herbicide, bispyribac-sodium (BS). The mutations involvedExpand
