Abstract

MscS‐Like (MSL) 10 is a member of the MscS superfamily of mechanosensitive ion channels and one of 10 MSL proteins in the model flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Unlike Escherichia coli MscS, MSL10 contains 6 transmembrane helices, and only its C‐terminal TM helix shows homology with EcMscS's pore‐lining domain. MSL10 has been shown to provide a mechanosensitive activity in plant cells and Xenopus oocytes. However, its structural organization and function in plants are just beginning to be elucidated.
