High impact information on CESA3


Biological context of CESA3

  • These observations indicate that these Athb genes have major functions in the mature plant, and therefore, in contrast to homeobox genes in other eukaryotes and to the kn-1 gene in maize, are unlikely to function in the primary control of developmental processes during embryogenesis or organogenesis [3].

Associations of CESA3 with chemical compounds


Other interactions of CESA3

  • In the embryo, CESA1, CESA2, CESA3, and CESA9 are expressed in largely overlapping domains and may act cooperatively in higher order complexes [5].
  • Together, these observations are compatible with a model in which CESA6 and CESA3 are active as a protein complex [6].
