Previous studies showed that ABCG11 and ABCG12, two ATP-binding-cassette (ABC) transporters, are required for cuticular lipids extracellular secretion. Here, we characterized ABCG13, a third clade member, to widen our limited knowledge regarding assembly of the plant's cuticle. We isolated an abcg13 knockout mutant and used RNAi and artificial microRNA approaches to study the effect of ABCG13 loss-of-function. These plants were subsequently used to conduct a detailed analysis of cuticular… CONTINUE READING
