      The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) protein superfamily constitutes   one of the largest protein families known in plants. In this   report, we performed a complete inventory of ABC protein genes in   Vitis vinifera, the whole genome of which has been sequenced. By   comparison with ABC protein members of Arabidopsis thaliana, we   identified 135 putative ABC proteins with 1 or 2 NBDs in V.   vinifera. Of these, 120 encode intrinsic membrane proteins, and   15 encode proteins missing TMDs. V. vinifera ABC proteins can be   divided into 13 subfamilies with 79 “full-size,” 41 “half-size,”   and 15 “soluble” putative ABC proteins. The main feature of the   Vitis ABC superfamily is the presence of 2 large subfamilies,   ABCG (pleiotropic drug resistance and white-brown complex   homolog) and ABCC (multidrug resistance-associated protein). We   identified orthologs of V. vinifera putative ABC transporters in   different species. This work represents the first complete   inventory of ABC transporters in V. vinifera. The identification   of Vitis ABC transporters and their comparative analysis with the   Arabidopsis counterparts revealed a strong conservation between   the 2 species. This inventory could help elucidate the biological   and physiological functions of these transporters in V. vinifera.
