Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) is the prototype for a family of extracellular polypeptides that affect cell proliferation and differentiation, and tissue morphogenesis. TGF-beta signalling is mediated by two types of serine/threonine kinase receptors, the type I and II receptors, which are able to form a heteromeric complex. No cytoplasmic(More)
We cloned and characterized MtPRP4, a new member of the repetitive proline-rich protein gene family in Medicago truncatula. The sequence of MtPRP4 predicts a 62-kD protein consisting of a 22-amino acid N-terminal signal peptide and a 527-amino acid repetitive proline-rich domain composed of three repetitive pentapeptide motifs arranged into two decapeptide(More)
