UNLABELLED • PREMISE OF THE STUDY The potassium cation (K(+)), one of the most abundant cations in cells, improves plant tolerance to various abiotic stresses. Alligatorweed (Alternanthera philoxeroides) is well known for its strong capacity to accumulate K(+) The distinctive K(+) accumulation capability of alligatorweed is linked to a high-affinity K(+) transport facilitated by K(+)-uptake transporters (ApKUPs).• METHODS A putative K(+) transporter gene, ApKUP4, was isolated from… CONTINUE READING
