An Auxin Gradient and Maximum in the Arabidopsis Root Apex Shown by High-Resolution Cell-Specific Analysis of IAA Distribution and Synthesis[W]
Fluorescence-activated cell sorting of green fluorescent protein–marked cell types combined with highly sensitive mass spectrometry methods are introduced as a novel means for analyses of IAA distribution and metabolism at cellular resolution to indicate that local biosynthesis and polar transport combine to produce auxin gradients and maxima in the root tip.
Comparative transcriptome profiling of two Brassica napus cultivars under chromium toxicity and its alleviation by reduced glutathione
RNA-Seq method explored the hazardous behavior of Cr as well as GSH up-regulating mechanism by activating plant metabolism, stress responsive genes, TFs and protein encyclopedia and indicated that cultivar ZS 758 had better metabolism and showed higher tolerance against Cr toxicity.
Tillage, Glyphosate and Beneficial Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi: Optimising Crop Management for Plant–Fungal Symbiosis
CT has a greater negative impact on AM fungal growth than ZT and glyphosate, but that glyphosate is also detrimental to AMfungal growth and hinders subsequent population recovery.
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Agriculture
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are biotrophic symbionts forming close relationships with an estimated 80% of terrestrial plants suitable as their host. Via an established AM fungal–host
The Tripartite Rhizobacteria-AM Fungal-Host Plant Relationship in Winter Wheat: Impact of Multi-Species Inoculation, Tillage Regime and Naturally Occurring Rhizobacteria Species
Soils and plant root rhizospheres have diverse microorganism profiles. Components of this naturally occurring microbiome, arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria
The Dipeptide H-Trp-Arg-OH (WR) Is a PPARα Agonist and Reduces Hepatic Lipid Accumulation in Lipid-Loaded H4IIE Cells
The biological activities of a dietary dipeptide, H-Trp-Arg-OH (WR), on the regulation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α activity is investigated and it is confirmed that WR activates PPARα and reduces hepatic lipid accumulation in lipid-loaded hepatocytes.
Use of natural AhR ligands as potential therapeutic modalities against inflammatory disorders.
Current research involving ligands for the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) and their role in immunomodulation is discussed and evidence indicating the potential use of these ligands in regulating inflammation in various diseases will be highlighted.


A role for flavin monooxygenase-like enzymes in auxin biosynthesis.
Results from tryptophan analog feeding experiments and biochemical assays indicate that YUCCA catalyzes hydroxylation of the amino group of tryptamine, a rate-limiting step in tryptophile-dependent auxin biosynthesis.
Auxin in action: signalling, transport and the control of plant growth and development
This review will focus on the plant hormone auxin and its action, and highlight recent mutagenesis and molecular studies, which have delineated the pathways of auxin transport, perception and signal transduction, and which together define the roles of Auxin in controlling growth and patterning.
TAA1-Mediated Auxin Biosynthesis Is Essential for Hormone Crosstalk and Plant Development
Auxin as a model for the integration of hormonal signal processing and transduction.
This review will use, as an example, auxin in the root of Arabidopsis thaliana to illustrate the complex nature of hormonal signal processing and transduction and make the case that the application of a systems-biology approach is necessary, if the relationship between a plant's environment and its growth/developmental responses is to be properly understood.
Trp-dependent auxin biosynthesis in Arabidopsis: involvement of cytochrome P450s CYP79B2 and CYP79B3.
Evidence is provided that the two Arabidopsis cytochrome P450s, CYP79B2 and CYP 79B3, are critical enzymes in auxin biosynthesis in vivo, and IAOx is thus implicated as an important intermediate in auxIn biosynthesis.
Auxin: regulation, action, and interaction.
Nearly six decades after the structural elucidation of IAA, many aspects of auxin metabolism, transport and signalling are well established; however, more than a few fundamental questions and innumerable details remain unresolved.
Regulation of polar auxin transport by AtPIN1 in Arabidopsis vascular tissue.
The PIN-FORMED (PIN1) gene was found to encode a 67-kilodalton protein with similarity to bacterial and eukaryotic carrier proteins, and the AtPIN1 protein was detected at the basal end of auxin transport-competent cells in vascular tissue.
Sites and Regulation of Auxin Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis Roots
A model is presented for how the primary root is supplied with auxin during early seedling development and lower but significant synthesis capacity was observed in tissues upward from the tip, showing that the root contains multiple auxin sources.
The Involvement of Gibberellin 20-Oxidase Genes in Phytochrome-Regulated Petiole Elongation of Arabidopsis
It is shown that enhancement of petiole elongation by a far-red (FR)-rich LD is mimicked by a brief end-of-day (EOD) FR exposure in short day (SD), and Circadian entrainment to a daytime pattern provides an explanation for the SD expression of AtGA20ox1.
