The ubiquitous cell membrane proteins called aquaporins are now firmly established as channel proteins that control the specific transport of water molecules across cell membranes in all living organisms. The aquaporins are thus likely to be of fundamental significance to all facets of plant growth and development affected by plant–water relations. A majority of plant aquaporins have been found to share essential structural features with the human aquaporin and exhibit water-transporting… CONTINUE READING
