Modulation, Purification and Function of a Soluble Auxin Receptor
Multicellular organisms use chemical signals, such as hormones, for the regulation of their growth and development. Cells that are sensitive to hormones show a specific response. In analogy with animal hormones it is assumed that hormone-sensitive cells contain a protein that is able to bind the hormone and, subsequently, to activate a biochemical process, which eventually leads to the observed response.
