The nitrate transporter from Chlorella sorokiniana (accession number AY026523) has been cloned by screening a cDNA library based on mRNA isolated after 30 min treatment of Chlorella with 5 mM nitrate and with a RT-PCR product (730 bp) as a probe. The Chlorella sequence has similarity to known nitrate transporters of the NRT2 family (high-affinity nitrate transporters). The cDNA clone was used for functional expression in Xenopus oocytes and a nitrate-dependent current was measured at pH 5.5 but not at pH 7.4. A second algal gene or a second gene product was not needed for functional expression in Xenopus. Inhibitor studies in Chlorella indicated that protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation is involved in nitrate induction of ChNRT2.1. In addition to nitrate, ChNRT2.1 expression is induced by nitroprusside, a NO donor, and is affected by glucose.
