Abstract Arsenate [As(V)] is toxic to organisms, and phosphate (Pi) transporter can mediate As(V) uptake due to their similarity in chemical structure. In the rice (Oriza sativa L.) genome, 13 Pi transporter genes (OsPTs) are present. Their response to As(V) and contribution to As(V) accumulation are unknown. We determined absolute mRNA amount of OsPTs in rice seedlings and OsPT1, OsPT2, OsPT4, and OsPT8 were quantified by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). OsPT2, OsPT4, and OsPT8 were… CONTINUE READING
