Analysis of Medicago truncatula Aux1-Like Genes, Encoding Putative Auxin Influx Carriers: Are they Involved in Rhizobium-Induced Nodule Organogenesis?
Part of the Current Plant Science and Biotechnology in Agriculture book series (PSBA, volume 38)
Our results support a model in which nodule initiation involves a transient inhibition of polar auxin transport (Mathesius et al. 1998) followed by a redirection of auxin flow towards the developing nodule, mediated by AUXl-like proteins.
