PHABULOSA Controls the Quiescent Center-Independent Root Meristem Activities in Arabidopsis thaliana

Plant roots are programmed to grow continuously into the soil, searching for nutrients and water. The iterative process of cell division, elongation, and differentiation contributes to root growth.

Mutations in MAB21L2 Result in Ocular Coloboma, Microcornea and Cataracts

Coloboma occurs when the eye is not formed properly during prenatal development. It is often associated with additional eye abnormalities and can result in significant loss of vision. Brett Deml and colleagues used whole exome sequencing in an affected family to identify mutations in a new gene associated with dominant coloboma in humans, MAB21L2.
