Expression and transcriptional regulation of amino acid transporters in plants

Recent studies have shown that there are more than 50 amino acid transporter genes in the Arabidopsis genome. This abundance of amino acid transporters implies that they play a multitude of fundamental roles in plant growth and development. Current research on the expression and regulation (i.e., tissue-specific expression and regulation of expression in response to nutrient and environmental changes) of these genes has provided useful information about the functional significance of plant amino acid transport systems.
