    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Cytokinins represent a group of plant hormones that have been shown to be essential for plant growth and development. A recent large-scale phylogenetic analysis of components of the cytokinin signal transduction pathway revealed, among other findings, the existence of a second, previously unknown subfamily of cytokinin receptors. Here we report that the cytokinin binding domains of the members of the 2 subfamilies contain residues that are highly conserved in either or in both subfamilies. Experiments using fluorescence microscopy hint at an ER and a plasma membrane localization for 2 members of the newly identified subfamily. These data provide new insights in the conservation of sequence and localization properties among the 2 subfamilies.
