Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT2G31190 WXR1 auxin Encodes RUS2 (root UVB sensitive2), a DUF647-containing protein that is homologous to the RUS1 protein. RUS2 works with RUS1 in a root UV-B sensing pathway that plays a vital role in Arabidopsis early seedling morphogenesis and development.
