Measurement of auxin transport in Arabidopsis thaliana

  title={Measurement of auxin transport in Arabidopsis thaliana},
  author={Daniel R. Lewis and Gloria K. Muday},
  journal={Nature Protocols},
This protocol allows the measurement of auxin transport in roots, hypocotyls and inflorescences of Arabidopsis thaliana plants by examining transport of radiolabeled auxin or movement of an auxin-induced gene expression signal. The protocol contains four stages: seedling growth, auxin application, a transport period of variable length, and quantification of auxin movement or reporter expression. Beyond the time for plant growth, the transport assay can be completed within 4–18 h. Auxin is… CONTINUE READING
