ECC Gene ID Repr. ID Gene name Functional description O.I. H.G. Other DB
XAt1g70140843350ATFH8 (formin 8)Encodes a group I formin. Binds to F-actin barbed ends. Has severing actin filaments activity. Binds profilin. Involved in the initiation and tip growth of root hairs through regulation of actin cytoskeleton.O.I.H.G.
XAt3g13870820600RHD3 (ROOT HAIR DEFECTIVE 3)required for regulated cell expansion and normal root hair development. Encodes an evolutionarily conserved protein with putative GTP-binding motifs that is implicated in the control of vesicle trafficking between the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi compartments.O.I.H.G.
XAt4g12420826851SKU5Encodes a protein of unknown function involved in directed root tip growth. It is a member of 19-member gene family and is distantly related structurally to the multiple-copper oxidases ascorbate oxidase and laccase, though it lacks the copper-binding domains. The protein is glycosylated and GPI-anchored. It is localized to the plasma membrane and the cell wall. The gene is expressed most strongly in expanding tissues.O.I.H.G.
XAt4g23640828464TRH1 (TINY ROOT HAIR 1)Functions as a potassium transporter and is required for the establishment of root tip growth.O.I.H.G.
XAt4g26690828776SHV3 (SHAVEN 3)Glycerophosphoryl diester phosphodiesterase-like protein involved in cell wall cellulose accumulation and pectin linking. Impacts root hair, trichome and epidermal cell development.O.I.H.G.
XAt4g34580829610COW1 (CAN OF WORMS1)Encodes COW1 (can of worms1), a phosphatidylinositol transfer protein essential for root hair tip growth. The N-terminus of the COW1 protein is 32% identical to an essential phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (PITP), the yeast Sec14 protein (sec14p) while the C-terminus is 34.5% identical to a late nodulin of Lotus japonicus, Nlj16. Expression of COW1 complements the growth defect associated with Sec14p dysfunction in yeast. GFP fused to the COW1 protein specifically accumulates at the site of root hair outgrowth.O.I.H.G.
XAt5g20350832157TIP1 (TIP GROWTH DEFECTIVE 1)Encodes a protein containing ankyrin and DHHC-CRD domain. Acts to restrict the size of the swelling that forms at the beginning of root hair cell growth, possibly by a mechanism that requires RHD1. Mutant displays defects in both root hair and pollen tube growth.O.I.H.G.
XAt5g49270834987SHV2 (SHAVEN 2)Involved in successfully establishing tip growth in root hairs.O.I.H.G.
XAt5g65090836633BST1 (BRISTLED 1)Encodes a protein involved in root hair morphogenesis and tip growth. Required for restricting both the size of the root-hair initiation site and the width of the root hairs during the transition to tip growth, but, apparently, is not required for normal subsequent tip growth.O.I.H.G.
