Also known as Aspartyl protease 25 (Protein RICE ANTHER DOWN-REGULATED BY CHILLING 1). Anther-specific aspartic protease involved in tapetal programmed cell death (PCD). Directly regulated by the transcription factor EAT1/DTD in anthers during tapetum PCD and degeneration.
Also known as Aspartyl protease AED1 (Apoplastic EDS1-dependent protein 1). Aspartyl protease involved in a homeostatic feedback mechanism regulating systemic immunity. Has only mild or no influence on local defenses. Acts downstream of salicylic acid to suppress systemic immunity.
Also known as Aspartyl protease UND (Protein UNDEAD). Probable aspartic protease activated by the transcription factor MYB80. May participate in the regulation of the timing of tapetal programmed cell death (PCD) which is critical for pollen development.
