The plant cell cycle

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1999 Dec;2(6):440-6. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5266(99)00027-8.


Molecular controls of the plant cell cycle must integrate environmental signals within developmental contexts. Recent advances highlight the fundamental conservation of underlying cell cycle mechanisms between animals and plants, overlaid by a rich molecular and regulatory diversity that is specific to plant systems. Here we review plant cell cycle regulators and their control.
