Because a plant continues to domain containing leucine-rich repeats (LRRs), a pu- form organs throughout its life, the proper balance tative transmembrane (TM) domain, and a functional between cell differentiation and cell division in the serine-threonine protein kinase domain (Clark et al., meristem is crucial for continued organogenesis and 1997; Williams et al., 1997; Stone et al., 1998). CLV1 normal plant development. Several genes and their is predicted to be a plasma membrane protein, but corresponding proteins have been implicated in this its
