Arabidopsis VAC14 Is Critical for Pollen Development through Mediating Vacuolar Organization
Pollen viability depends on dynamic vacuolar changes during pollen development involving increases and decreases of vacuolar volume through water and osmolite accumulation and vacuolar fission. Mutations in FAB1A to FAB1D, the genes encoding phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate [PI(3,5)P2]-converting kinases, are male gametophyte lethal in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) due to defective vacuolar fission ...
