    ..The high and preferential expression of GhPIP1-2 and GhgammaTIP1 during fiber cell elongation suggests that they may play important roles in supporting the rapid influx of water into vacuoles during cotton fiber cell expansion. ..

    ..Together with expression and bioinformatic analyses, our results support the idea that the genes identified in this study represent an important genetic resource providing potential targets to modify the water use properties of cotton...
