- ... Metacaspases are cysteine-dependent proteases essential in plant PCD. This study focused on PCD features, the metacaspase II protein (TaeMCAII) and its gene expression and dynamic distribution during the developmental process of wheat sieve elements (SEs). Our results showed that the SEs experienced enucleation, inclusion loss, cell wall thickening and decreased cytosol density during their develo ...
