Mutondo, Moola (2007) AtSRA1 and AtSCAR2: Regulators of ARP2/3 complex - mediated cell morphogenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana. PhD thesis, Universität zu Köln.
The actin cytoskeleton plays an important role in cell morphogenesis of plant cells. The ARP2/3 complex is a nucleator of actin filament polymerisation and its 7- subunit composition is conserved in both plants and animals. In this study, the distorted mutant klunker (klk) was characterised on a genetic, molecular and phenotypic level. The gene affected by the (klk) mutation is AtSRA1. An Arabidopsis homolog of a regulator of the ARP2/3 complex, AtSCAR2 was also identified and characterised in this study.
