Molecular characterisation of the SNAKESKIN mutation in Arabidopsis
Eland, Cathlene (2004) Molecular characterisation of the SNAKESKIN mutation in Arabidopsis. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Screening of an En element population of Arabidopsis thaliana resulted in the identification of a mutant known as snakeskin (sks) in which the epidermal cell-cell linkages appear to be significantly perturbed (Marchant and Bennett, unpublished results). As a result of the breakdown of epidermal cell-to-cell linkages there are changes in epidermal cell architecture and distribution. These include alterations in pavement epidermal cell shape, stomatal distribution and trichome morphology.
