Abstract: Cdna of a monosaccharide transporter in rice, OsMST5 (Oryza sativa monosaccharide transporter 5) was cloned and its sugar transport activity was characterized by heterologous expression analysis. The amino acid sequence and topology were similar to the sequences and topology of other plant monosaccharide transporters. Yeast cells co-expressed with OsMST5 cDNA transported some monosaccharide substrates. The transport rate increased when ethanol as an electron donor was added, so the transporter was an energy-dependent active one. Most of the OsMST5 was expressed in panicles before pollination, indicating that it is associated with pollen development in rice. © 2003 by Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Agrochemistry.
