Mutations in the human sulphate transporter gene, DTDST, have been implicated in several diseases. Analysis of affected patients has linked disease symptoms to faulty sulphate transporter activity. We have reproduced two of these mutations in SHST1, a homologous member of the family isolated from the tropical legume, Stylosanthes hamata. Both mutations significantly reduce sulphate transport activity of SHST1. These results indicate that conserved residues between distinct members of the family...[Show more]
