The importance of zinc in organisms is clearly established, and mechanisms involved in zinc acquisition by plants have recently received increased interest. In this report, the identification, characterization and location of GmZIP1, the first soybean member of the ZIP family of metal transporters, are described. GmZIP1 was found to possess eight putative transmembrane domains together with a histidine-rich extra-membrane loop. By functional complementation of zrt1zrt2 yeast cells no longer… CONTINUE READING
