Encodes the heterotrimeric G-protein beta subunit and is involved in organ shape. A significant fraction of the protein is found in the ER. Mutants carrying null alleles express similar fruit phenotypes, as seen in er plants, but differ from er in that the stem is only slightly shorter than that in the wild type, the pedicel is slightly longer than that in the wild type, and the leaves are rounder than those in er mutants. Gene is expressed in all tissues examined, with highest expression level found in siliques. It is involved in resistance to Plectosphaerella cucumerina. The predicted protein has two DWD motifs. It can bind to DDB1a in Y2H assays and may be involved in the formation of a CUL4-based E3 ubiquitin ligase
ATEXO70E1 (exocyst subunit EXO70 family protein E1)
A member of EXO70 gene family, putative exocyst subunits, conserved in land plants. Arabidopsis thaliana contains 23 putative EXO70 genes, which can be classified into eight clusters on the phylogenetic tree.
This gene is a key regulator of the salicylic acid (SA)-mediated systemic acquired resistance (SAR) pathway. It is similar to the transcription factor inhibitor I kappa B, and contains ankyrin repeats. It confers resistance to the pathogens Pseudomonas syringae and Peronospora parasitica in a dosage-dependent fashion. Although transgenic Arabidopsis plants overexpressing NPR1 acquire enhanced sensitivity to SA and (benzothiadiazole) BTH, they display no obvious detrimental morphological changes and do not have elevated pathogenesis-related gene expression until activated by inducers or pathogens.
Member of the MAP215 family of microtubule-associated proteins required to establish interphase arrays of cortical microtubules.Mutants have defects in cytokinesis during pollen development. Vegetative phenotypes observed in temperature sensitive mutants include left-handed organ twisting, isotropic cell expansion and impairment of root hair polarity.
The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the lateral root over time, from its formation to the mature structure. A lateral root is one formed from pericycle cells located on the xylem radius of the root, as opposed to the initiation of the main root from the embryo proper.
The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the root over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The root is the water- and mineral-absorbing part of a plant which is usually underground, does not bear leaves, tends to grow downwards and is typically derived from the radicle of the embryo.
The series of molecular signals generated as a consequence of the presence of unfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) or other ER-related stress; results in changes in the regulation of transcription and translation.
Morphogenesis of an organ. An organ is defined as a tissue or set of tissues that work together to perform a specific function or functions. Morphogenesis is the process by which anatomical structures are generated and organized. Organs are commonly observed as visibly distinct structures, but may also exist as loosely associated clusters of cells that work together to perform a specific function or functions.
