Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT5G53280 PDV1 cytokinin An integral outer envelope membrane protein (as its homolog PDV2), component of the plastid division machinery. Similar to ARC5, PDV1 localized to a discontinuous ring at the division site in wild-type plants. PDV1 and PDV2 are required for localization of ARC5 at the chloroplast division site. Topological analysis showed that the large N-terminal region of PDV1 upstream of the transmembrane helix bearing a putative coiled-coil domain is exposed to the cytosol. Mutation of the conserved PDV1 C-terminal Gly residue did not block PDV1 insertion into the outer envelope membrane but did abolish its localization to the division site.
