The plant auxin indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) plays critical roles in plant growth and development. There are two main strategies proposed for plant synthesis of IAA: the Trp-dependent (TD) and the Trp-independent (TI) pathways. Four TD pathways, namely the indole-3-acetamide pathway, the indole-3-pyruvic acid pathway, the tryptamine pathway and the(More)
The crosstalk between auxin and cytokinin (CK) is important for plant growth and development, although the underlying molecular mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we describe the isolation and characterization of a mutant of Arabidopsis Cytokinin-induced Root Curling 6 (CKRC6), an allele of ANTHRANILATE SYNTHASE ALPHA SUBUNIT 1 (ASA1) that encodes the(More)
Auxin and cytokinin (CK) are both important hormones involved in many aspects of plant growth and development. However, the details of auxin biosynthesis and the interaction between auxin and CK are still unclear. Isolation and characterization of an auxin deficient mutant cytokinin induced root curling 2 (ckrc2) in this work reveal that CKRC2 encodes a(More)
