Deciphering aquaporin regulation and roles in seed biology

Hoai, Phan T. T.; Tyerman, Stephen D.; Schnell, Nicholas; Tucker, Matthew; McGaughey, Samantha; Qiu, Jiaen; Groszmann, Michael; Byrt, Caitlin


Seeds are the typical dispersal and propagation units of angiosperms and gymnosperms. Water movement into and out of seeds plays a crucial role from the point of fertilization through to imbibition and seed germination. A class of membrane intrinsic proteins called aquaporins (AQPs) assist with the movement of water and other solutes within seeds. These highly diverse and abundant proteins are associated with different processes in the development, longevity, imbibition, and germination of...[Show more]
