1.A.8.10.3
Tonoplast intrinsic protein 1.1 of 251 aas and 6 TMSs. It is permeable to water, H2O2, etc. TIPs control water trade among cytosolic and vacuolar compartments and can also transport glycerol, ammonia, urea, hydrogen peroxide, metals/metalloids, and so forth. Additionally, TIPs are engaged with different abiotic stress responses and developmental processes like leaf expansion, root elongation and seed germinatio.  TIPs of rice have been studied (Balasaheb Karle et al. 2020).
