Autotoxicity plays an important role in regulating crop yield and quality. To help characterize the autotoxicity mechanism of rice, we performed a large-scale, transcriptomic analysis of the rice root response to ferulic acid, an autotoxin from rice straw. Root growth rate was decreased and reactive oxygen species, calcium content and lipoxygenase activity… CONTINUE READING
