Protein farnesylation has an important role in the regulation of plant development and signal transduction, but the exact function of this modification is not well understood. The identification of protein farnesyltransferase substrates, together with the genetic analysis of mutants that are deficient in protein farnesylation, should significantly increase our knowledge of this form of protein modification in plants.
