Plant hormone transporters: what we know and what we would like to know


Park, Jiyoung; Lee, Youngsook; Martinoia, Enrico; Geisler, Markus (2017). Plant hormone transporters: what we know and what we would like to know. BMC Biology, 15(1):93.

Abstract

Hormone transporters are crucial for plant hormone action, which is underlined by severe developmental and physiological impacts caused by their loss-of-function mutations. Here, we summarize recent knowledge on the individual roles of plant hormone transporters in local and long-distance transport. Our inventory reveals that many hormones are transported by members of distinct transporter classes, with an apparent dominance of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) family and of the Nitrate transport1/Peptide transporter family (NPF). The current need to explore further hormone transporter regulation, their functional interaction, transport directionalities, and substrate specificities is briefly reviewed.
