High impact information on TPD1

  • These data suggest that the TPD1 product plays an important role in the differentiation of tapetal cells, possibly in coordination with the EMS1/EXS gene product, a Leu-rich repeat receptor protein kinase [1].
  • When TPD1 was expressed ectopically in the wild-type Arabidopsis carpel, the number of cells in the carpel increased significantly, showing that the ectopic expression of TPD1 protein could activate the cell division in the carpel [2].

Regulatory relationships of TPD1

  • This result further suggests that TPD1 regulates cell fates in coordination with EMS1/EXS [2].
