In plants, although KNOX genes are known to regulate secondary cell wall (SCW) formation, their protein-regulating mechanisms remain largely unknown. Here, we showed that GhKNL1, which regulates SCW formation and fiber development in cotton, could interact with an IQ67 domain containing protein (GhIQD14) in yeast. Confocal observation showed that GhIQD14 was localized to the microtubules. Read More
