How do crop plants tolerate acid soils? Mechanisms of aluminum tolerance and phosphorous efficiency.
Acid soils significantly limit crop production worldwide because approximately 50% of the world's potentially arable soils are acidic. Because acid soils are such an important constraint toExpand

The molecular physiology of heavy metal transport in the Zn/Cd hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens.
An integrated molecular and physiological investigation of the fundamental mechanisms of heavy metal accumulation was conducted in Thlaspi caerulescens, a Zn/Cd-hyperaccumulating plant species. AExpand

The physiology, genetics and molecular biology of plant aluminum resistance and toxicity.
Aluminum (Al) toxicity is the primary factor limiting crop production on acidic soils (pH values of 5 or below), and because 50% of the world’s potentially arable lands are acidic, Al toxicity is aExpand

A gene in the multidrug and toxic compound extrusion (MATE) family confers aluminum tolerance in sorghum
Crop yields are significantly reduced by aluminum toxicity on highly acidic soils, which comprise up to 50% of the world's arable land. Candidate aluminum tolerance proteins include organic acidExpand

AtALMT1, which encodes a malate transporter, is identified as one of several genes critical for aluminum tolerance in Arabidopsis.
Aluminum (Al) tolerance in Arabidopsis is a genetically complex trait, yet it is mediated by a single physiological mechanism based on Al-activated root malate efflux. We investigated a possibleExpand

Plant Adaptation to Acid Soils: The Molecular Basis for Crop Aluminum Resistance.
Aluminum (Al) toxicity in acid soils is a significant limitation to crop production worldwide, as approximately 50% of the world's potentially arable soil is acidic. Because acid soils are such anExpand

Functional expression of a probable Arabidopsis thaliana potassium channel in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
We report the isolation of a cDNA (KAT1) from Arabidopsis thaliana that encodes a probable K+ channel. KAT1 was cloned by its ability to suppress a K+ transport-defective phenotype in mutantExpand
