CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Using RNA-seq to help identify functions in unknown organs.

This chapter focuses on discovering the function of midgut in Phasmatodea. The appendices of the Phasmatodea midgut are not simply extra excretory organs. They are involved in multiple drug resistance, eliminating foreign compounds from the hemolymph through an array of ABC transporters and...

Cover for Regulation of sulfur amino acid metabolism in fungi.

The fungal biosynthesis of cysteine and methionine requires the ability to accumulate sulfur atoms from the environment and to convert the sulfur into a usable form (e.g. sulfide). In particular, the processes involved in sulfur amino acid biosynthesis, including sulfur acquisition, the generation...

Cover for Genetics and mechanisms of drug resistance in nematodes.

This chapter reviews the mechanism of action of currently used anthelmintics against nematodes and the associated genetic basis of drug resistance, with emphasis on ABC transporter-related resistance. Anthelmintic groups discussed include benzimidazoles, macrocyclic lactones and cholinergic...

Cover for Emergence of multi-drug resistance in fungal pathogens: a potential threat to fungicide performance in agriculture.

In this chapter, the involvement of ATP binding cassette (ABC) and major facilitator superfamily (MFS) transporters in the export of toxic compounds and their involvement in multi-drug resistance (MDR) in different fungal plant pathogens are discussed. However, as MDR is best documented for B....

Cover for Mechanisms of potassium uptake and transport in higher plants.

Potassium, the second most abundant mineral nutrient, is essential to plant growth. Over millions of years, plants have evolved a sophisticated network of potassium transport systems. These include Shaker-type and "two-pore" potassium channels; various types of potassium-permeable non-selective...

Cover for Calcium transporters: from fields to the table.

Calcium transporters regulate calcium fluxes within cells. Plants, like all organisms, contain channels, pumps and exchangers to carefully modulate intracellular calcium levels. This review presents a summary of the recent advances in cloning and characterizing of these transporters and highlights...

Cover for Nitrate and ammonium transporters in plants.

Many specific low affinity and high affinity membrane bound transport proteins have been reported to be involved in uptake, transport and remobilization of NO3- and NH4+-N, which are taken up by the plants from their rhizosphere. AtNRT1.1 and AtNRT2.1 are nitrate transporters which facilitate...

Cover for Plant sulfate transporters.

Sulfur represents one of the essential macronutrients for plant nutrition. The main source of sulfur is as sulfate taken up from the soil by the roots. Cellular influx across the plasma membrane as well as efflux from the vacuoles is mediated by members of a single gene family. This plant sulfate...

Cover for Mechanisms of manganese accumulation and transport.

Manganese (Mn) is an essential mineral nutrient. Mn transport proteins have a critical role in mediating acquisition of Mn by the roots, partitioning Mn into organelles such as the vacuole and chloroplast, controlling the long-distance translocation of Mn, and regulating Mn loading into organs such ...
