A chemical genetic approach has been used to investigate the mechanism by which external glutamate (l-Glu) is able to trigger major changes in root architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana L. An initial screen of 80 agonists and antagonists of mammalian glutamate and GABA receptors, using a specially developed 96-well microphenotyping system, found none that replicated the response of the root to l-Glu or antagonized it. However, a larger screen using >1500 molecules bioactive in Saccharomyces… CONTINUE READING
