Gene Accession code Potential function
14-3-3L DQ402076 14-3-3-like, may participate in the regulation of fiber elongation.
CAP AB014884 adenylyl cyclase associated protein, may play a functional role during early stages of cotton fiber development.
CEL AY574906 endo-1,4-beta-glucanase, necessary for plant cellulose biosynthesis.
CelA1 GHU58283 cellulose synthase
CelA3 AF150630 cellulose synthase catalytic subunit
CIPK1 EF363689 calcineurin B-like (CBL) protein-interacting protein kinases, was highly expressed in the elongating phase in developing fiber
