adapted from a review on cellulose synthesis in Arabidopsis (Li et al. 2014b). The open box stands for the plasma membrane (PM). A Zinc-finger domain (a blue bar) exists towards the N-terminus in the first cytoplasmic domain, followed by two transmembrane domains (TMDs; gray bars), the second cytoplasmic domain between the second and the third TMDs, and the other six TMDs. The Plant-conserved Region (P-CR, a green bar), the conserved D,D,D,QXXRW residues (black spots), and the Class-specific region (C-SR, a yellow bar) are all located in the second cytoplasmic domain. Red bars indicate point missense mutations as follows: bc-s1 (OsCESA9, G10R, Jin et al. 2016), S1-24 (OsCESA7, C40Y, Wang et al. 2016a), bc13 (OsCESA9, G101K, Song et al. 2013), fc17 (OsCESA4, F426S, Li et al. 2018), Bc19 (OsCESA4, P507S) in this study, Bc6 (OsCESA9, R588G, Kotake et al. 2011), S1-60 (OsCESA9, G905D, Wang et al. 2012), and bc11 (OsCESA4, G858R, Zhang et al. 2009)
