High impact information on ALA1

  • Downregulation of ALA1 in Arabidopsis results in cold-affected plants that are much smaller than those of the wild type [1].
  • We have characterized ALA1 (for aminophospholipid ATPase1), a novel P-type ATPase in Arabidopsis that belongs to the gene family ALA1 to ALA11 [1].
  • ALA1 complements the deficiency in phosphatidylserine internalization into intact cells that is exhibited by the drs2 yeast mutant, and expression of ALA1 results in increased translocation of aminophospholipids in reconstituted yeast membrane vesicles [1].


  1. Chilling tolerance in Arabidopsis involves ALA1, a member of a new family of putative aminophospholipid translocases. Gomès, E., Jakobsen, M.K., Axelsen, K.B., Geisler, M., Palmgren, M.G. Plant Cell (2000) [Pubmed]
