A cDNA coding for a putative organic cation transporter (OCT) was isolated from Phaseolus vulgaris roots by differential display RT-PCR and the corresponding full-length cDNA (named PvOCT1) was subsequently obtained by RACE-PCR. Hydropathy profiles of the deduced amino acid sequence (547 residues) predicted the existence of twelve membrane–spanning domains, which are highly conserved in the major facilitator superfamily (MFS). Three specific domains, which characterize organic ion transporters… CONTINUE READING
