P1B-type ATPases are very important for the transport of heavy metals in many organisms. Heavy metal transport is crucial for biological systems because it enables the function and development of essential processes. AtHMA1 is a P1B-type ATPase in Arabidopsis thaliana which is suspected to play a role in Mn2+ transport. This project focuses on the cloning and expression of HMA1 in order to further characterize this P1B-type ATPase.
