Amino acid transporters in plants

Biochim Biophys Acta. 2000 May 1;1465(1-2):275-80. doi: 10.1016/s0005-2736(00)00144-9.

Abstract

Amino acid transporters are essential participants in the resource allocation processes that support plant growth and development. Recent results have identified several new transporters that contribute to a wide array of physiological activities, and detailed molecular analysis has provided fundamental insights into the structure, function and regulation of these integral membrane proteins.
