ZEN1 is a key enzyme in the degradation of nuclear DNA during programmed cell death of tracheary elements.

Abstract

Tracheary elements (TEs) have a unique cell death program in which the rapid collapse of the vacuole triggers the beginning of nuclear degradation. Although various nucleases are known to function in nuclear DNA degradation in animal apoptosis, it is unclear what hydrolase is involved in nuclear degradation in plants. In this study, we demonstrated that an… (More)
