Annual Plant Reviews, Volume 32, Cell Cycle Control and Plant Development
April 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
Cell Cycle Control and Plant Development commences with an
introductory chapter and is broadly divided into two parts. Part 1
details the basic cell machinery, with chapters covering
cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), cyclins, CDK inhibitors,
proteolysis, CDK phosphorylation, and E2F/DP transcription factors.
Part 2, which describes the cell cycle and plant development,
covers cell cycle activation, cell cycle control during leaf
development, endoreduplication, the cell cycle and trichome, fruit
and endosperm development, the hormonal control of cell division
and environmental stress, and cell cycle exit.
The editor of this important book, Professor Dirk Inzé, well known and respected internationally, has brought together an impressive team of contributing authors, providing an excellent new volume in Blackwell Publishing’s Annual Plant Reviews Series. The book is an essential purchase for research teams working in the areas of plant sciences and molecular, cell and developmental biology. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this essential and timely volume.
