Functional analysis of a putative master regulator of plant development, the Translationally-Controlled Tumour Protein
Being sessile, plants need to accurately coordinate leaf and root growth to adapt to changing environmental conditions. TCTP (Translationally Controlled Tumour Protein) belongs to a conserved gene family, present in all eukaryotes. In animals, TCTP controls several core cellular processes including apoptosis, cellular proliferation and growth, tissue patterning, and is thought to interact with the TOR (Target Of Rapamycin) pathway. Plant TCTPs are little known, however, but recent studies...[Show more]
