The establishment of the Angiosperm root apical meristem is dependent on the specification of a stem cell niche and the subsequent development of the quiescent center at the presumptive root pole. Distribution of auxin and the establishment of auxin maxima are early formative steps in niche specification that depend on the expression and distribution of auxin carriers. Auxin specifies stem cell niche formation by directly and indirectly affecting gene activities. Part of the indirect regulation… CONTINUE READING
