Proteostasis is required for normal flower development in Arabidopsis thaliana. Plants that have mutations in both the small heat shock protein BOB1 as well as the proteasome subunit RPT2a produce flowers with ectopic ovules and radialized organs visible on the margins of their sepals. See Silverblatt-Buser et al. G3 2018: 1379–1390.
Looking for high-quality professional development resources to advance your career and become an active part of the scientific community?
