High impact information on ALF5

  • Both transcriptional and translational fusions of ALF5 to the beta-glucuronidase reporter gene show that ALF5 is expressed strongly in the root epidermis, a tissue in direct contact with the external environment [1].
  • These phenotypes are consistent with a role for ALF5 as an efflux transporter [1].
  • Moreover, expression of the Arabidopsis ALF5 cDNA in yeast confers resistance to tetramethylammonium [1].
