Abstract

SOMATIC EMBRYOGENESIS RECEPTOR-LIKE KINASES (SERKs) are coreceptors for diverse extracellular signals. SERKs are involved in a wide array of developmental and immune related processes first discovered in Arabidopsis. Recent work demonstrates the evolutionary conservation of SERKs in all multicellular plants, and highlights their functional conservation in monocots and dicots.
