The suppression of the cyclic nucleotide-gated channel (CNGC) AtCNGC10 alters K(+) transport in Arabidopsis plants. Other CNGCs have been shown to transport Ca(2+), K(+), Li(+), Cs(+) and Rb(+) across the plasma membrane when expressed in heterologous systems; however, the ability of the AtCNGC10 channel to transport nutrients other than K(+) in plants has not been previously tested. The ion fluxes along different zones of the seedling roots, as estimated by the non-invasive ion-specific… CONTINUE READING
