The Arabidopsis wall-associated receptor kinase, Wak1, is a member of the Wak family (Wak1-5) that links the plasma membrane to the extracellular matrix. By the yeast two-hybrid screen, we found that a glycine-rich extracellular protein, AtGRP-3, binds to the extracellular domain of Wak1. Further in vitro binding studies indicated that AtGRP-3 is the only isoform among the six tested AtGRPs that specifically interacts with Waks, and the cysteine-rich carboxyl terminus of AtGRP-3 is essential… CONTINUE READING
