Molecular characterization and expression analysis of sodium pump genes in the marine red alga Porphyra yezoensis

Sodium pumps (EC, Na+-ATPase), which mediate excretion of Na+ from the cell, play a crucial role in Na+ homeostasis in eukaryotic cells. The objective of this study is to understand the Na+ efflux system in a marine red alga. We identified a novel sodium pump gene, PyKPA2, from the marine red alga Porphyra yezoensis. The amino acid sequence of… (More)
