At5g44610: MAP18 (Microtubule-associated Protein 18)

Encodes a protein of unknown function with seven repeated VEEKK motifs. RNAi and overexpression experiments suggest that the gene is not involved in cell division but might be consequential for cell shape of epidermal and cortical cells. The protein encoded by this gene binds to cortical microtubules and inhibits tubulin polymerization.
