    Abstract
    Catalpa fargesii is an important economic tree species used for furniture and timber production because of its high density and hardness. Its survival and growth are severely affected and primarily limited by drought stress. Thus, to better understand the mechanism of drought resistance in C. fargesii , we used qRT-PCR to reveal significantly different expression of three plasma membrane intrinsic protein genes: CfPIP1 - 1 , CfPIP1 - 2 and CfPIP1 - 4. We then cloned their full-length cDNA sequences and characterized the encoded proteins. We analyzed the genes phylogenetically and...
