α-Expansins in the semiaquatic ferns Marsilea quadrifolia and Regnellidium diphyllum: evolutionary aspects and physiological role in rachis elongation
Results indicate that α-expansins act as wall-loosening proteins in ferns, as has been proposed for angiosperms, and Rd-EXP1 may play a role in mediating elongation of the rachis in submerged plants. Expand
