The Arabidopsis ERECTA gene encodes a putative receptor protein kinase with extracellular leucine-rich repeats.
The cloned ER gene encodes a putative receptor protein kinases, and the results suggest that cell-cell communication mediated by a receptor kinase has an important role in plant morphogenesis. Expand
Effects of sulfur nutrition on expression of the soybean seed storage protein genes in transgenic petunia.
Results indicate that this mechanism of gene regulation in response to sulfur nutrition is conserved in petunia even though it is not used to regulate its own major seed storage proteins. Expand
Regulation of shoot epidermal cell differentiation by a pair of homeodomain proteins in Arabidopsis
It is shown that PROTODERMAL FACTOR2 (PDF2), a member of the HD-GL2 class of homeobox genes, is expressed exclusively in the L1 of shoot meristems and that recombinant PDF2 protein specifically binds to the L 1 box in vitro. Expand
Genetic and molecular analysis of an allelic series of cop1 mutants suggests functional roles for the multiple protein domains.
Molecular analysis of the nine mutant alleles that accumulated mutated forms of COP1 protein revealed that disruption of the G beta-protein homology domain or removal of the very C-terminal 56 amino acids are both deleterious to COP1 function. Expand
Characterization of the Class IV Homeodomain-Leucine Zipper Gene Family in Arabidopsis1[W]
Observations suggest that some of the class IV homeodomain-Leucine zipper members act redundantly with other members of the family during various aspects of cell differentiation. Expand
Spermidine Synthase Genes Are Essential for Survival of Arabidopsis
The first genetic evidence indicating a critical role of the spermidine synthase in plant embryo development is provided, as described in this paper. Expand

In Arabidopsis thaliana, the initiation of flowering is carried out by four genetic pathways: gibberellin, autonomous, vernalization, and light-dependent pathways. These processes are integrated byExpand
ACAULIS5, an Arabidopsis gene required for stem elongation, encodes a spermine synthase
The results of the experiments showed that polyamines play an essential role in promotion of internode elongation through cell expansion in Arabidopsis and the relationships to plant growth regulators such as auxin and gibberellins that have related functions. Expand
The dwarf phenotype of the Arabidopsis acl5 mutant is suppressed by a mutation in an upstream ORF of a bHLH gene
A model in which ACL5 plays a role in the translational activation of SAC51, which may lead to the expression of a subset of genes required for stem elongation is suggested. Expand
The Arabidopsis ERECTA gene is expressed in the shoot apical meristem and organ primordia.
In situ hybridization and histochemical analysis using transgenic plants carrying chimeric gene fusions, with the ERECTA promoter fused to the beta-glucuronidase (GUS) gene, showed that E DIRECTA was predominantly expressed in the shoot apical meristems and organ primordia. Expand
