Plant ABC proteins - a unified nomenclature and updated inventory.

Verrier P.J., Bird D., Burla B., Dassa E., Forestier C., Geisler M., Klein M., Kolukisaoglu H.U., Lee Y., Martinoia E., Murphy A., Rea P.A., Samuels L., Schulz B., Spalding E.J., Yazaki K., Theodoulou F.L.

The ABC superfamily comprises both membrane-bound transporters and soluble proteins involved in a broad range of processes, many of which are of considerable agricultural, biotechnological and medical potential. Completion of the Arabidopsis and rice genome sequences has revealed a particularly large and diverse complement of plant ABC proteins in comparison with other organisms. Forward and reverse genetics, together with heterologous expression, have uncovered many novel roles for plant ABC proteins, but this progress has been accompanied by a confusing proliferation of names for plant ABC genes and their products. A consolidated nomenclature will provide much-needed clarity and a framework for future research.
