  Mutant lines of Arabidopsis thaliana resistant to the artificial auxin 2,4-dichloro phenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) were isolated by screening for growth of seedlings in the presence of toxic levels of 2,4-D. Genetic analysis of these resistant lines indicated that 2,4-D resistance is due to a recessive mutation at a locus we have designated AxrCited by: The genetic identification of Arabidopsis auxin-resistant mutants has provided crucial insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying auxin signaling. Molecular and biochemical studies of the gene products that are affected by these mutations have positioned the SCF TIR1 ubiquitin-ligase complex as a central regulator of auxin signaling. We investigated a genetic pathway in root hair development in Arabidopsis thaliana, involving the receptor‐like kinase FERONIA (FER), two guanine nucleotide exchange factors for ROP s (RopGEF 4 and RopGEF 10), and the small GTP ase Rho of plants (ROP s).; Loss‐ and gain‐of‐function analyses demonstrated distinct roles of RopGEF 4 and RopGEF 10 such that RopGEF 4 is only important for Cited by: The role of auxin during pattern formation in Arabidopsis thaliana 5 Abbreviations 2,4-D 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid AFB AUXIN SIGNALING F BOX PROTEIN ARE AUXIN RESPONSIVE ELEMENT ARFs AUXIN RESPONSE FACTORs ATP Adenosine triphosphate Aux/IAA INDOLEACETIC ACID INDUCIBLE BDL BODENLOS Ca2+ Calcium.

  The TIR1/AFB proteins are auxin co-receptors that mediate diverse responses to the plant hormone auxin. The genome of Arabidopsis encodes six TIR1/AFB proteins representing three of the four clades that were established prior to angiosperm radiation. To determine the role of these proteins in plant growth and development we have performed an extensive genetic analysis involving the Cited by: 2.

We show that in young Arabidopsis leaf primordia, molecular auxin response patterns presage sites of procambial differentiation.

Auxin is an important plant hormone responsible for plant growth and development. This hormone regulates gene expression which is dependent on three families of proteins as described above [4]. While some studies have described the role of this gene regulatory network on auxin-mediated responses, detailed analysis of this gene family was lacking. Epigenetic regulation involves a myriad of mechanisms that regulate the expression of loci without altering the DNA sequence. These different mechanisms primarily result in modifications of the chromatin topology or DNA chemical structure that can be heritable or transient as a dynamic response to environmental cues. The phytohormone auxin plays an important role in almost every aspect of Author: Eduardo Mateo-Bonmatí, Rubén Casanova-Sáez, Karin Ljung.

Control of seed size involves complex interactions among the zygotic embryo and endosperm, the maternally derived seed coat, and the parent plant. Here we describe a mutant in Arabidopsis, megaintegumenta (mnt), in which seed size and weight are dramatically increased. One factor in this is extra cell division in the integuments surrounding mnt mutant ovules, leading to the Cited by:   The first major advance in the genetic dissection of auxin biosynthesis in plants was the isolation of the auxin overproduction mutants superroot1 (sur1: At2g) and superroot2 (sur2: At4g) in Arabidopsis (Boerjan et al., ; Delarue et al., ).

When grown in light, both sur1 and sur2 have much longer hypocotyls than do wild type.

Recent genetic and biochemical studies in Arabidopsis have unambiguously established the first complete Trp-dependent auxin biosynthesis pathway. The first chemical step of auxin biosynthesis is the removal of the amino group from Trp by the TRYPTOPHAN.

A number of observations have implicated auxin in the formation of vascular tissues in plant organs. These include vascular strand formation in response to local auxin application, the effects of impaired auxin transport on vascular patterns and suggestive phenotypes of Arabidopsis auxin response mutants.

In this study, we have used molecular markers to visualize auxin response patterns in. The phytohormone auxin plays critical roles in the regulation of plant growth and development. Indoleacetic acid (IAA) has been recognized as the major auxin for more than 70 y.

Toward that end, we analyzed natural variation in the auxin receptor F-box family of wild accessions of the reference plant Arabidopsis thaliana and used this information to populate a structure/function by: 9. All Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) plants used in this study were in the Columbia-0 background.

Here, we show that exposure of Arabidopsis thaliana roots to Al induces a localized enhancement of auxin signaling in the root-apex TZ that is dependent on TAA1, which encodes a Trp.

Forward genetic screens identified a group of Arabidopsis mutants able to elongate roots despite the presence of inhibitory auxin levels [auxin-resistant (axr) mutants]. The molecular characterization of the axr1 mutant revealed that AXR1 function is related to the ubiquitylation pathway, which can mark proteins for proteasome-mediated.

Ethylene represents an important regulatory signal for root development. Genetic studies in Arabidopsis thaliana have demonstrated that ethylene inhibition of root growth involves another hormone signal, auxin.

This study investigated why auxin was required by ethylene to regulate root growth. We initially observed that ethylene positively controls auxin biosynthesis in the root apex. Untargeted LC-MS-based metabolomic approaches and quantitative genetic analysis enabled broad-spectrum molecular dissection of the Arabidopsis leaf metabolite composition of Cvi×Ler RILs (Keurentjes et al., ).

Auxin research has reached a watershed. The first plant genes encoding products that play a role in auxin action (as defined by genetic analysis) have been cloned.
