Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Vacuolar Membrane Transporter
Biological function
Vacuolar iron transporter involved in the transfer of iron from the cytosol to the vacuole for intracellular iron storage. Vacuolar iron storage is required for seed embryo and seedling development.
