meristem, auxin feeds back on the direction of its transport via the auxin response transcription factor MONOPTREOS (MP). By perturbing MP activity both globally and locally we show that localized MP activity is necessary for the generation of PIN1 convergence patterns and that localized MP expression is sufficient to orient PIN1 polarity towards MP… CONTINUE READING
