  • A new mutant with disturbed cell differentiation and severely altered plant morphology was obtained by visual screening of a T-DNA mutagenized population of Arabidopsis thaliana. The T-DNA in this mutant was inserted in an unknown gene (ORF At5g46700) located on chromosome V. This gene and additional 12 genes in the Arabidopsis genome show structural homologies to a class of abundantly expressed mammalian proteins with four transmembrane domains (TM4) called tetraspanins. In animals… CONTINUE READING
