Although aquaporins have been known to transport hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) across cell membranes, the H2O2-regulated expression patterns and the permeability of every family member of the plasma membrane intrinsic protein (PIP) toward H2O2 have not been determined. This study investigates the H2O2-regulated expression levels of all plasma membrane aquaporins of Arabidopsis thaliana (AtPIPs), and determines the permeability of every AtPIP for H2O2 in yeast.
