An ABC-transporter of Arabidopsis thaliana exhibiting high sequence similarity to the human (MRP1) and yeast (YCF1) glutathione-conjugate transporters has been analysed and used to complement a cadmium-sensitive yeast mutant (DTY168) that also lacks glutathione-conjugate transport activity. Comparison of the hydrophobicity plots of this A. thaliana MRP-like protein with MRP1 and YCF1 demonstrates that the transmembrane domains are conserved, even at the N-terminus where sequence identity is low… CONTINUE READING
