Ion channels play a fundamental role in maintaining cellular homeostasis, which is one of the most important processes in plant production. Potassium channels are particularly interesting as they transport nutrients, used by cells in physiological processes. The purpose of this work was detecting the gene codes for the potassium ion channel AKT1 in roots of bell pepper seedlings, the PCR was standardized for AKT1 detection, and the oligo: AAGATCAGATGCACCTTGACTT was synthesized (best aligned at a temperature of 62 °C), then it was sequenced and analyzed presenting an identity of 94-97% at NCBI with the gene AKT1.
Keywords: Plant nutrition, Capsicum, PCR, gene, sequence.
