• Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors (kip-related proteins, KRPs) play a major role in the regulation of plant cell cycle in antagonizing its progression, and are thus regulators of development. The primary sequence of KRPs is characterized by the existence of conserved motifs, for which we have limited information on their functional significance. • We performed a functional analysis of various domains present in KRPs from tomato. A series of deletion mutants of SlKRP1 was generated and… CONTINUE READING
