We show that homologs of the major intrinsic protein (MIP) family are major integral proteins of the spinach leaf plasma membrane and constitute approximately 20% of integral plasma membrane protein. By using oligonucleotide primers based on partial amino acid sequences for polymerase chain reaction and screening of a spinach leaf cDNA library, we obtained two full-length clones of MIP homologs (pm28a and pm28b). One of these clones, pm28a, was sequenced, and it encodes a protein (PM28A) of 281… CONTINUE READING
