The precise spatial-temporal coordination of cell division and differentiation is necessary for the correct formation of tissues, organs, and the organism as a whole. This coordination has been implemented by the intercellular communication mediated by signaling molecules and receptors that selectively recognize them. Membrane receptor kinases of ERECTA family regulate inflorescence and flower structure, the formation of root epidermis and adaptation responses. The characterization of the ERECTA genes of flowering plant pinesap Monotropa hypopitys with unique development features can enrich the knowledge about the kinase ERECTA functions and conserved development processes with their participation. Transcriptomic and genomic search with the subsequent structural-phylogenetic analysis identified the mRNA of a gene of serine-threonine kinase receptor with leucine-rich repeats of MhyERL1, which is the only ortholog of the ERECTA family kinases of pinesap. A quantitative analysis of the MhyERL1 gene transcripts has revealed its expression in all analyzed pinesap tissues with maximum levels in the flowers. MhyERL1 is probably involved in defining the inflorescence and flower architecture, and the formation of the pinesap root epidermis. The cascades involving ERL1 are apparently conserved. The exception are pathways associated with the development of above-ground vegetative structures, and the immune response to fungal pathogens probably lost in the process of the pinesap adaptation to unfavorable environmental conditions.
