Access from EThOS:
In plants, polar auxin transport requires the activity of auxin transport carrier which consists of influx and efflux protein (Palme and Galweiler, 2001). Genetic evidence suggests that AXR4 and AUXl are involved in regulation of polar auxin transport (Hobbie and Estelle, 1995; Yamamoto and Yamamoto, 1999; Marchant et al., 1999). AUXl encodes an auxin influx carrier (Yang et al, 2006). AUXl trafficking to the plasma membrane of root cells are dependent on the AXR4 gene product (Dharmasiri et al., 2006). The axr4 mutation selectively disrupts targeting of HA-AUXl but not other known Arabidopsis plasma membrane proteins. This project to characterize the AXR4 protein, the protein function and the basis of its regulation of AUXl trafficking.
