Genome-wide identification, characterization and expression profile analysis of expansins gene family in sugarcane (Saccharum spp.)


Expansins refer to a family of closely related non-enzymatic proteins found in the plant cell wall that are involved in the cell wall loosening. In addition, expansins appear to be involved in different physiological and environmental responses in plants such as leaf and stem initiation and growth, stomata opening and closing, reproduction, ripening and… (More)
