Gene : PMT5 A. thaliana

Gene ID  ? AT3G18830
Brief Description  polyol/monosaccharide transporter 5  Source: Araport11 (06/2016).
Is Obsolete?  false
Computational Description  ? polyol/monosaccharide transporter 5 (PMT5); FUNCTIONS IN: in 11 functions; INVOLVED IN: transport, transmembrane transport; LOCATED IN: plasma membrane, membrane; EXPRESSED IN: 31 plant structures; EXPRESSED DURING: 13 growth stages; CONTAINS InterPro DOMAIN/s: Sugar transporter, conserved site (InterPro:IPR005829), Major facilitator superfamily (InterPro:IPR020846), General substrate transporter (InterPro:IPR005828), Sugar/inositol transporter (InterPro:IPR003663), Major facilitator superfamily, general substrate transporter (InterPro:IPR016196); BEST Arabidopsis thaliana protein match is: polyol/monosaccharide transporter 1 (TAIR:AT2G16120.1).  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.
Curator Summary  ? This gene encodes a plasma membrane-localized polyol/cyclitol/monosaccharide-H -symporter. The symporter is able to catalyze the energy-dependent membrane passage of a wide range of linear polyols (three to six carbon backbone), of cyclic polyols (myo-inositol), and of numerous monosaccharides, including pyranose ring-forming and furanose ring-forming hexoses and pentoses. This gene belongs to a monosaccharide transporter-like (MST-like) superfamily.  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.

Annotation PubMed Id
Analysis of transport properties and expression in Arabidopsis indicate that AtPLT5 functions to transport a wide range of sugars into specific sink tissues in the plant [PLT5] 15525644
AtPLT5 is a broad-spectrum H-symporter for linear polyols, such as sorbitol, xylitol, erythritol, or glycerol. It also catalyzes the transport of the cyclic polyol myo-inositol and of different hexoses and pentoses, including ribose[AtPLT5] 15598803
