Protein turnover in plants is a key regulatory mechanism for many cellular processes. The ubiquitin (Ub)/ 26S proteasome pathway is probably the most well studied way to attain this goal. An Arabidopsis mutant which has been termed hawaiian skirt {hws) fails to shed its floral organs. The sepals remain fused at their base and fail to abscise. Mutation of HWS leads to overgrowth for both reproductive and vegetative Arabidopsis organs; in contrast over-expression of HWS leads to an opposite effect.I. So HWS protein may function to inhibit cell division or elongation whlch is responsible for the sepal fusion and organ outgrowth phenotype.
