K(+) is an essential macronutrient required by plants to complete their life cycle. It fulfills important functions and it is widely used as a fertilizer to increase crop production. Thus, the identification of the systems involved in K(+) acquisition by plants has always been a research goal as it may eventually produce molecular tools to enhance crop productivity further. This review is focused on the recent findings on the systems involved in K(+) acquisition. From Epstein's pioneering work… CONTINUE READING
