Nitrate uptake by root cells is a key step of nitrogen metabolism and has been widely studied at the physiological level and, more recently, at the molecular level. Two classes of genes, NRT1 and NRT2, have been found to be potentially involved in the high and low affinity nitrate transport systems (HATS and LATS, respectively). The complexity of the molecular basis of nitrate uptake has been enhanced by the finding that in many plants both NRT1 and NRT2 classes are represented by multigene… Expand
Analysis of the NRT2 Nitrate Transporter Family in Arabidopsis. Structure and Gene Expression
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship between NRT2 proteins belonging to several kingdoms is investigated and the structure of the different members of the Arabidopsis family is compared and the significance of each paralog on the basis of the relative levels of gene expression is evaluated. Expand
Post-translational regulation of nitrogen transporters in plants and microorganisms
TLDR
This review highlights the inorganic nitrogen transporters regulated at the post-translational level and compares the known mechanisms in plants and microorganisms, and discusses how these mechanisms could contribute to the regulation of nitrogen uptake and/or nitrogen sensing. Expand
Regulatory levels for the transport of ammonium in plant roots.
TLDR
The focus is on the different levels at which AMT-dependent ammonium uptake is regulated and the gaps in current knowledge are highlighted. Expand
Regulation of Root Nitrate Uptake at the NRT2.1 Protein Level in Arabidopsis thaliana*
TLDR
It is shown that NRT2.1 is mainly localized in the plasma membrane of root cortical and epidermal cells, and that several forms of the protein seems to co-exist in cell membranes (the monomer and at least one higher molecular weight complex). Expand
Nitrate Assimilation in Plants
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the physiological and molecular aspects of NO3− uptake and reduction, and Lysine residues have been found to play a crucial role in the activity of the tonoplast electro-neutral NO3 − /H+ antiporter. Expand
Expression patterns of nitrate, phosphate, and sulfate transporters in Arabidopsis roots exposed to different nutritional regimes
TLDR
It is found that the expression of AtNRT2.1 was also upregulated by phosphate and sulfate resupply, which may indicate a novel role in regulating phosphate and sulphate responses. Expand
Nitrate transport in cucumber leaves is an inducible process involving an increase in plasma membrane H+-ATPase activity and abundance
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the first time evidence that a saturable and substrate-inducible nitrate uptake mechanism operates in cucumber leaves and that this activity appears to be related to that of PM H+-ATPase activity and in particular to the induction of CsHA2 isoform. Expand
Expression of two maize putative nitrate transporters in response to nitrate and sugar availability.
TLDR
A full-length cDNA encoding a putative high-affinity nitrate transporter from maize was isolated and characterised, suggesting similar genetic evolution and identical transmembrane structure prediction between the two deduced proteins, and differences in both regulation of their expression and mRNA localisation in response to nitrate, leading to hypothesise a principal role for ZmNRT2.2 in the xylem loading process. Expand
The genomic organization and transcriptional pattern of genes encoding nitrate transporters 1 (NRT1) in cucumber
TLDR
The first inventory of the Cucumis sativus NRT1 family together with the transcriptional profile of CsNRT1 genes suggest the physiological function of the family members in cucumber, and some striking differences in genes’ structure and quantity are revealed. Expand
Uptake, allocation and signaling of nitrate.
TLDR
Four gene families, nitrate transporter 1/peptide transporter (NRT1/PTR), NRT2, chloride channel (CLC), and slow anion channel-associated 1 homolog 3 (SLAC1/SLAH), are involved in nitrate uptake, allocation, and storage in higher plants. Expand

Eukaryotic nitrate and nitrite transporters
TLDR
Molecular, genetic and biochemical approaches to the study of eukaryotic nitrate/nitrite transporters allow an initial understanding of this step, which is much more complex and structured than previously suspected. Expand
Molecular and physiological aspects of nitrate uptake in plants
TLDR
Genes that encode representatives of each class of transport system have been identified and fall into two families: NRT1 and NRT2, which are induced in response to nitrate in the environment and are regulated by internal signals including nitrogen metabolites and shoot demand for nitrogen. Expand

TLDR
Recent progress in the characterisation of the two families of NO(-3) transporters that have so far been identified in plants are reviewed, their structure and their regulation are considered, and the evidence for their roles in NO (-3) acquisition is considered. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of phosphate and sulphate transport in plants.
TLDR
Information on the cell types in which phosphate and sulphate transporters are expressed is becoming available, enabling the roles of varioustransporters in the overall phosphate and sulfate nutrition of plants to be defined. Expand
Molecular and functional regulation of two NO3- uptake systems by N- and C-status of Arabidopsis plants.
TLDR
Observations show that expression of Nrt2;1 is under feedback repression by N-metabolites resulting from NO3- reduction, and changes in the Nrt1 mRNA level are not always associated with similarChanges in the activities of high- or low-affinity No3- transport systems. Expand
Nitrate and ammonium nutrition of plants: physiological and molecular perspectives
TLDR
The current picture of the mechanisms responsible for the uptake and efflux of nitrate and ammonium is reviewed, attempting to integrate the large body of physiological data with the recent advances in the molecular biology of nitrates and ammonia transporters in bacteria and algae as well as in higher plants.

CHL1 encodes a component of the low-affinity nitrate uptake system in Arabidopsis and shows cell type-specific expression in roots.
TLDR
A "two-gene" model for the low-affinity nitrate uptake system of Arabidopsis is proposed, which is consistent with the chlorate resistance phenotype of chl1 mutants and does not fit the current model of a single, constitutive component for theLowaffinity uptake system. Expand
A high affinity nitrate transport system from Chlamydomonas requires two gene products
TLDR
Results prove that two gene products are required to produce a functional high affinity nitrate transport system and that this process does not involve transcriptional regulation. Expand

TLDR
A correlation between Nrt2 mRNA accumulation and 15N nitrate influx rates is shown, providing the first evidence that the expression of Nrt1 correlates with the rate of nitrate uptake, and in situ hybridization revealed a tissue-specific expression pattern. Expand
