Plant Aquaporins: From Transport to Signaling by François Chaumont, Stephen D. Tyerman

By François Chaumont, Stephen D. Tyerman

Aquaporins are channel proteins that facilitate the diffusion of water and small uncharged solutes throughout mobile membranes. Plant aquaporins shape a wide relations of hugely divergent proteins which are thinking about many various physiological tactics. This booklet will summarize the hot advances concerning plant aquaporins, their phylogeny, constitution, substrate specificity, mechanisms of law and roles in a number of vital physiological tactics regarding the keep watch over of water circulate and small solute distribution on the phone, tissue and plant point in an ever-changing environment.

Recently, some experimental data indicated that PIP1 and PIP2 co-assemble in heterotetramers (different monomers interacting within the same tetramer). Still, even though the high sequence identity among all the PIP clusters explains the possibility that PIP1 and PIP2 assemble together into the same tetramer, as if they were almost ‘identical’ molecules, not all of the PIP1-PIP2 pairs follow this behaviour. Indeed, site-directed mutagenesis experiments together with crystallography and molecular modelling revealed the existence of some crucial structural elements involved in PIP oligomerization that can also control hetero-oligomerization.

2014). Furthermore, information about the expression pattern of paradigmatic interacting ZmPIPs is also available. Gene and protein expression was studied in maize roots, leaves and stomatal complexes (Hachez et al. 2006, 2008; Heinen et al. 2014). All ZmPIP genes, except ZmPIP2;7, are expressed in primary roots and leaves, and their expression is dependent on the developmental stage of the organ (Hachez et al. 2006, 2008). In this regard, it was proposed that some specific pairs of PIP1 and PIP2 have a correlation in their expression pattern in accordance with their functional responses (Yaneff et al.
