ATP-binding cassette transporters are involved in the active transport of a wide variety of metabolites in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. One subfamily, the Pleiotropic Drug Resistance (PDR) transporters, or full-size ABCG transporters, are found only in fungi and plants. NtPDR1 was originally identified in Nicotiana tabacum suspension cells (BY2), in which its expression was induced by microbial elicitors. To obtain information on its expression in plants, we generated NtPDR1-specific antibodies… 
Activity of the purified plant ABC transporter NtPDR1 is stimulated by diterpenes and sesquiterpenes involved in constitutive and induced defenses
TLDR
Direct evidence is provided of an interaction between the NtPDR1 transporter and its substrates and that Nt PDR1 transports compounds involved in both constitutive (diterpenes) and induced plant defenses.
Purification and biochemical characterization of NpABCG5/NpPDR5, a plant pleiotropic drug resistance transporter expressed in Nicotiana tabacum BY-2 suspension cells.
TLDR
The expression, purification, enzymatic characterization and 2D analysis by electron microscopy of NpABCG5/NpPDR5 from Nicotiana plumbaginifolia, which has been shown to be involved in the plant defense against herbivores, confirmed that plant and fungal PDR transporters have different properties.
Cloning and expression of selected ABC transporters from the Arabidopsis thaliana ABCG family in Pichia pastoris
TLDR
The expression system Pichia pastoris is evaluated for heterologous overexpression of PDR genes of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and cloned and expressed the potential phytohormone transporters PDR2 and PDR8 in P. pastoris.
Molecular Characterization of LjABCG1, an ATP-Binding Cassette Protein in Lotus japonicus
TLDR
The induction of Lj ABCG1 expression was remarkable by methyl jasmonate treatment, and reporter gene experiments indicated that LjABCG1 was strongly expressed in the nodule parenchyma and cell layers adjacent to the root vascular tissue toward the nodules.
Title Molecular Characterization of LjABCG 1 , an ATP-BindingCassette Protein in Lotus japonicus
LjABCG1, a full-size ABCG subfamily of ATP-binding cassette proteins of a model legume, Lotus japonicus, was reported as a gene highly expressed during the early stages of nodulation, but have not
The Full-Size ABCG Transporter of Medicago truncatula Is Involved in Strigolactone Secretion, Affecting Arbuscular Mycorrhiza
TLDR
It is shown that overexpression of a SL transporter from petunia (PaPDR1) enhances AMF colonization rates in M. truncatula, and the reduced mycorrhization indicates that less SLs are secreted by the mutant plants, which is in line with the observation that mtabcg59 exudates exhibit a reduced stimulating effect on the germination of the parasitic plant Phelipanche ramosa compared to the corresponding wild type.
Functional diversity of plant ABC transporters : from iron mining to volatile emission
TLDR
The characterization of transgenic plants silenced for NtPDR3 expression revealed that these plants were less tolerant to iron-deficient conditions than wild-type plants, displaying stronger chlorosis and growth retardation when not supplied with iron.
Plant ABC transporters: time for biochemistry?
TLDR
The importance of the direct biochemical characterization of plant ABC transporters is highlighted and some insights are given into the current status of the homologous and heterologous expression of such proteins.
AaPDR3, a PDR Transporter 3, Is Involved in Sesquiterpene β-Caryophyllene Transport in Artemisia annua
TLDR
This work has identified AaPDR3, encoding a pleiotropic drug resistance (PDR) transporter located to the plasma membrane from A. annua, and identified GUS activity, which is primarily restricted to T-shaped trichomes of old leaves and roots of transgenic A.annua plants expressing proAa PDR3: GUS.
Molecular cloning and characterization of ABCG/PDR-type ABC transporter in grape berry skin
TLDR
All full-size ABCG transporters found in the grape genome database are listed and focus is placed on VvABCG44/VvPDR14 as a candidate resveratrol transporter, suggesting that Vv ABCG44 functions as a resver atrol transporter in grape.

TLDR
Data suggest that NpABC1 is involved in the secretion of a secondary metabolite that plays a role in plant defense.
A pleiotropic drug resistance transporter in Nicotiana tabacum is involved in defense against the herbivore Manduca sexta.
TLDR
A PDR transporter, ABCG5/PDR5, from Nicotiana tabacum is described, and expression is induced in leaves by methyl jasmonate, wounding, pathogen infiltration, or herbivory by Manduca sexta, indicating an involvement of this P DR transporter in resistance to M. sexta Herbivory.
Loss of AtPDR8, a plasma membrane ABC transporter of Arabidopsis thaliana, causes hypersensitive cell death upon pathogen infection.
TLDR
The results indicate that At PDR8 is a key factor controlling the extent of cell death in the defense response and suggest that AtPDR8 transports some substance(s) which is closely related to the response of plants to pathogens.
cDNA cloning and characterization of tobacco ABC transporter: NtPDR1 is a novel elicitor-responsive gene.
TLDR
Results indicate that NtPDR1 may be involved in the general defense response in tobacco and is the first report that microbial elicitors induce the expression of a plant ABC transporter gene.
NpPDR1, a Pleiotropic Drug Resistance-Type ATP-Binding Cassette Transporter from Nicotiana plumbaginifolia, Plays a Major Role in Plant Pathogen Defense1
TLDR
Data show that NpPDR1 is involved in pathogen resistance and thus demonstrate a new role for the ATP-binding cassette transporter family.
Identification of a cluster IV pleiotropic drug resistance transporter gene expressed in the style of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia
TLDR
In N. plumbaginifolia plants in which NpPDR2 expression was prevented by RNA interference, no unusual phenotype was observed, including at the flowering stage, which suggests that Np PDR2 is not essential in the reproductive process under the tested conditions.

TLDR
The data presented provide a scaffold for further studies of the physiological function of Medicago ABCG transporters and their possible role in modulating plant-microorganism interactions.
Functions of ABC transporters in plants.
TLDR
Originally identified as tonoplast-intrinsic proteins that shuttle xenobiotic conjugates from the cytosol into the vacuole, thus being an integral part of the detoxification machinery, ABC transporters are now recognized to participate in a multitude of physiological processes that allow the plant to adapt to changing environments and cope with biotic and abiotic stresses.
The plant PDR family of ABC transporters
TLDR
The results indicate that the Arabidopsis genome contains 15 genes encoding PDR proteins and that these genes show a spectrum of specific expression patterns, both at the organ level and in response to various hormonal, environmental and chemical factors.
