In plant species, ammonium transporters (AMT) are generally responsible for mediating the ammonium, a primary source of nitrogen. In this study, we compared six Arabidopsis thaliana AMTs and ten Oryza sativa AMTs in terms of the aspects of phylogeny tree, gene and protein information, exon/intron organization, trans-membrane helices, conserved domain and subcellular localization. Together, this study shed light on the conservation and evolution of AMT genes in A. thaliana and O. sativa, probably contributing to the further experimentally confirmation of the genes.
