Use of Xenopus laevis Oocytes to Study Auxin Transport.


Xenopus laevis oocytes are an expression system that is particularly well suited for the characterization of membrane transporters. Oocytes possess only very little endogenous transport systems and therefore transporters can be studied with a high signal-to-noise ratio. This book chapter provides the basic methods to use Xenopus oocytes for the… (More)
