Posttranscriptional control of plant development

Yulan Cheng, Xuemei Chen
2004 Current opinion in plant biology  
Genetic studies have provided increasing evidence that proteins involved in all aspects of RNA metabolism, such as RNA processing, transport, stability, and translation, are required for plant development and for plants' responses to the environment. Such proteins act in floral transition, floral patterning, and signaling by abscisic acid, low temperature and circadian rhythms. Although some of these proteins belong to core RNA metabolic machineries, others may have more specialized cellular
