Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT4G39850 PED3 abscisic acid missense Encodes a peroxisomal protein of the ATP binding cassette (ABC) transporter class (PMP subfamily) with significant identity to the human X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP). The gene product promotes germination and represses embryo dormancy. ABI3, ABA1, FUS3 and LEC1 are epistatic to this gene. Mutants accumulate fatty acyl CoA suggesting a defect in uptake of fatty acyl CoA into the peroxisome.
