The functions of two genes whose expression provides tolerance to aluminium (Al) stress were investigated using plants and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast): the Arabidopsis thaliana blue copper binding gene (AtBCB) and Nicotiana tabacum guanosine diphosphate (GDP) dissociation inhibitor gene (NtGDI1). To determine the localization of these proteins, each gene was fused to the green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene and introduced into onion epidermal cells. AtBCB was localized to cell membrane… CONTINUE READING
