Since the first molecular structures of plant transporters were discovered over a decade ago, considerable advances have been made in the study of plant membrane transport, but we still do not understand transport regulation. The genes encoding the transport systems in the various cell membranes are still to be identified, as are the physiological roles of most transport systems. A wide variety of complementary strategies are now available to study transport systems in plants, including forward and reverse genetics, proteomics, and in silico exploitation of the huge amount of information contained in the completely known genomic sequence of Arabidopsis.
