Identification and functional characterisation of aquaporins in the grapevine, Vitis vinifera

Shelden, Megan C; Howitt, Susan; Kaiser, Brent; Tyerman, Stephen D


Plant aquaporins belong to a large superfamily of conserved proteins called the major intrinsic proteins (MIPs). There is limited information about the diversity of MIPs in grapevine, and their water transport capacity. The aim of the present study was to identify MIPs from grapevine and functionally characterise water transport of a subset of MIPs. Candidate genes were identified, by screening a Vitis vinifera L. (cv. Cabernet Sauvignon) cDNA library with gene specific probes, for aquaporin...[Show more]
