Description: Role of APM1 and interacting proteins in root meristem maintenance and seedling establishment
The Peer lab group studies seedling establishment, meristem maintenance, and the role of small molecule regulators in these processes. A single copy gene encoding a member of the M1 family of zinc metallopeptidases, Aminopeptidase M1 (APM1) regulates root meristem maintenance in Arabidopsis and is required for normal root development (Peer et al, 2009).
