Cell cycle progression is regulated by cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs). Arabidopsis thaliana contains two cdk genes, cdc2aAt and cdc2bAt. This paper compares the developmental and cell cycle phase-dependent transcription of both cdk genes. In situ hybridizations revealed that cdc2bAt steady-state mRNAs, much like cdc2aAt, are found both in meristematic cells and cells with a high proliferative competence. Cdc2aAt is expressed in every meristematic cell whereas cdc2bAt is found to be expressed… CONTINUE READING
