Phosphate transport in plants

  title={Phosphate transport in plants},
  author={Frank William Smith and Stephen R. Mudge and Anne L. Rae and Donna Glassop},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Transport of inorganic phosphate (Pi) through plant membranes is mediated by a number of families of transporter proteins. Studies on the topology, function, regulation and sites of expression of the genes that encode the members of these transporter families are enabling roles to be ascribed to each of them. The Pht1 family, of which there are nine members in the Arabidopsis genome, includes proteins involved in the uptake of Pi from the soil solution and the redistribution of Pi within the… CONTINUE READING
