    [Abstract] Auxin is a major growth hormone in plants and the first plant hormone to be discovered and studied (Darwin and Darwin, 1880). The auxin molecule in plants was first identified as indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) by Kögl et al. (1934). Active research over nearly a decade has shed light on many of the molecular mechanisms of its action but the ...

    Authors:  Amey Redkar and Gunther Doehlemann, date: 03/20/2016, view: 10851, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The basidiomycetous smut fungus Ustilago maydis (U. maydis) infects all aerial parts of its host plant maize (Zea mays L.). Infection symptoms are seen in the form of prominent tumors on all aerial parts of maize, after the establishment of a biotrophic interaction with the host usually around 5-6 days post infection ...
    Measurement of Net High-affinity Urea Uptake in Maize Plants
    Authors:  Laura Zanin, Nicola Tomasi and Roberto Pinton, date: 06/05/2015, view: 8012, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Despite its extensive use as a nitrogen fertilizer, the role of urea as a directly accessible nitrogen source for crop plants is still poorly understood. So far, the physiological and molecular aspects of urea acquisition have been investigated only in a few plant species highlighting the importance of a urea transporter in roots, DUR3 (Kojima et ...
