IRT1, an Arabidopsis Transporter Essential for Iron Uptake from the Soil and for Plant Growth Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
Plants are the principal source of iron in most diets, yet iron availability often limits plant growth. In response to iron deficiency, Arabidopsis roots induce the expression of the divalent cationExpand

Identification and Disruption of a Plant Shaker-like Outward Channel Involved in K+ Release into the Xylem Sap
SKOR, a K+ channel identified in Arabidopsis, displays the typical hydrophobic core of the Shaker channel superfamily, a cyclic nucleotide-binding domain, and an ankyrin domain. Expression in XenopusExpand

Cloning and expression in yeast of a plant potassium ion transport system.
A membrane polypeptide involved in K+ transport in a higher plant was cloned by complementation of a yeast mutant defective in K+ uptake with a complementary DNA library from Arabidopsis thaliana. AExpand

The Arabidopsis outward K+ channel GORK is involved in regulation of stomatal movements and plant transpiration
Microscopic pores present in the epidermis of plant aerial organs, called stomata, allow gas exchanges between the inner photosynthetic tissue and the atmosphere. Regulation of stomatal aperture,Expand

HLM1, an Essential Signaling Component in the Hypersensitive Response, Is a Member of the Cyclic Nucleotide–Gated Channel Ion Channel Family Online version contains Web-only data. Article,
The hypersensitive response (HR) in plants is a programmed cell death that is commonly associated with disease resistance. A novel mutation in Arabidopsis, hlm1, which causes aberrant regulation ofExpand

Nitric Oxide Contributes to Cadmium Toxicity in Arabidopsis by Promoting Cadmium Accumulation in Roots and by Up-Regulating Genes Related to Iron Uptake1[W]
Nitric oxide (NO) functions as a cell-signaling molecule in plants. In particular, a role for NO in the regulation of iron homeostasis and in the plant response to toxic metals has been proposed.Expand

Ferritins control interaction between iron homeostasis and oxidative stress in Arabidopsis.
Ferritin protein nanocages are the main iron store in mammals. They have been predicted to fulfil the same function in plants but direct evidence was lacking. To address this, a loss-of-functionExpand

Tissue-specific expression of Arabidopsis AKT1 gene is consistent with a role in K+ nutrition.
AKT1, a putative inwardly directed K+ channel of Arabidopsis, restores long-term potassium uptake in a yeast mutant defective in K+ absorption. In this paper, the expression pattern of the geneExpand

Regulated expression of Arabidopsis Shaker K+ channel genes involved in K+ uptake and distribution in the plant
Potassium is the most abundant cation in the cytosol, where it plays a role in basal functions. Rapid uptake and distribution of K+ is therefore required for plant growth. Three members of theExpand

Pollen tube development and competitive ability are impaired by disruption of a Shaker K(+) channel in Arabidopsis.
Sexual reproduction in plants requires elongation of the pollen tube through the transmitting tissues toward the ovary. Tube growth rate is a major determinant of pollen competitive ability. WeExpand
