The vacuolar membrane (tonoplast) of higher plant cells contains an abundant 27 kDa protein called TIP (tonoplast intrinsic protein) that occurs in different isoforms and belongs to a large family of homologous channel-like proteins found in bacteria, plants and animals. In the present study, we identified and characterized the function of gamma-TIP from… CONTINUE READING
