Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT5G49720 KOR1 cytokinin 78 G->E Encodes a membrane-bound endo-1,4-beta-D-glucanase, involved in cellulose biosynthesis. Loss-of-function mutants have severe cellulose-deficient phenotypes. During cell elongation, KOR1 is associated with Golgi apparatus and early endosome. Inhibition of cellulose biosynthesis promoted a redistribution of KOR1 in subcellular locations. These observations suggest that deposition of cellulose involves the intracellular cycling of KOR1.
