Submission to GenBank of the Small intrinsic protein (SIP) Subfamily in Cotton – GenBank Accession No. GU998846-GU998848 and GenBank Accession TPA;inferential No. BK007063-BK007064. National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Technical Abstract: The small basic intrinsic proteins (SIP) are one of the five aquaporin protein subfamilies. Aquaporin proteins are known to facilitate water transport through biological membranes. In order to identify SIP aquaporin gene candidates in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), in silico and molecular cloning efforts and subsequent sequence analyses were performed. We report the submission of 7 SIP subfamily genes to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. These data provide structural and functional characteristics of the cotton SIP gene family.
