Abstract
Asymmetric cell division is a vital component of plant development. It enables cell differentiation and cell diversity. A key component of asymmetric cell division is cell signaling. Signals are believed to control polarization and orientation of asymmetric divisions during stomatal development. The findings of this report suggest that PNL1 and PNL2, two LRR-RLKs found in Arabidopsis and closely related to maize PAN1 LRR-RLK, are possibly involved in the signaling events occurring during the asymmetric divisions involved in stomatal complex formation. Upon disruption of normal PNL1 and PNL2 protein synthesis via insertion mutations, an apparent double stomata ph...
