A distant coilin homologue is required for the formation of cajal bodies in Arabidopsis.
Cajal bodies (CBs) are subnuclear bodies that are widespread in eukaryotes, being found in mammals, many other vertebrates and in all plant species so far examined. They are mobile structures, moving, fusing, and budding within the nucleus. Here we describe a screen for Arabidopsis mutants with altered CBs and describe mutants that have smaller Cajal bodies (ncb-2, ncb-3), lack them altogether (ncb-1), have increased numbers of CBs (pcb) or have flattened CBs (ccb). We have identified the gen...Expand abstract
