Expansion of the APC superfamily of secondary carriers.
San Diego, United States. In Proteins, 2014
These families include the PAAP (Putative Amino Acid Permease), LIVCS (Branched Chain Amino Acid:Cation Symporter), NRAMP (Natural Resistance-Associated Macrophage Protein), CstA (Carbon starvation A protein), KUP (K⁺ Uptake Permease), BenE (Benzoate:H⁺ Virginia Symporter), and AE (Anion Exchanger).
Molecular biology of K+ transport across the plant cell membrane: what do we learn from comparison between plant species?
Montpellier, France. In J Plant Physiol, 2014
In this review, we focus on three families of plant K(+) transport systems that are active at the plasma membrane: the Shaker K(+) channel family, comprised of voltage-gated channels that dominate the plasma membrane conductance to K(+) in most environmental conditions, and two families of transporters, the HAK/KUP/KT K(+) transporter family, which includes some high-affinity transporters, and the HKT K(+) and/or Na(+) transporter family, in which K(+)-permeable members seem to be present in monocots only.
Coordination of K+ transporters in neurospora: TRK1 is scarce and constitutive, while HAK1 is abundant and highly regulated.
New Haven, United States. In Eukaryot Cell, 2013
The first, designated TRK, HKT, or KTR, has eight transmembrane helices and is folded like known potassium channels, while the second, designated HAK, KT, or KUP, has 12 transmembrane helices and resembles MFS class proteins.
