- Unveiling interactions among mitochondria, caspase-like proteases, and the actin cytoskeleton during plant programmed cell death (PCD)Christina E N Lord
Department of Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
PLoS ONE 8:e57110. 2013..Overall, our findings suggest the mitochondria as a possible upstream activator of YVADase activity and implicate these proteases as potential initiators of actin breakdown during perforation formation via PCD in the lace plant...
