Gene Information

Encodes VCS (VARICOSE). Involved in mRNA decapping. VCS forms a mRNA decapping complex with DCP1 (At1g08370) and DCP2 (At5g13570). Unlike DCP2, VCS itself does not have mRNA decapping activity in vitro. DCP1, DCP2 and VCS colocalize in cytoplasmic loci, which are putative Arabidopsis mRNA processing bodies. Null mutants of DCP1, DCP2, and VCS accumulate capped mRNAs with a reduced degradation rate. These mutants also share a similar lethal phenotype at the seedling cotyledon stage, with disorganized veins, swollen root hairs, and altered epidermal cell morphology. VCS is also required for leaf development.
