Manipulation of Auxin Transport in Plant Roots during Rhizobium Symbiosis and Nematode Parasitism

Grunewald, Wim; Van Noorden, Giel; van Isterdael, Gert; Beeckman, Tom; Gheysen, Godelieve; Mathesius, Ulrike


The plant rhizosphere harbors many different microorganisms, ranging from plant growth-promoting bacteria to devastating plant parasites. Some of these microbes are able to induce de novo organ formation in infected roots. Certain soil bacteria, collectively called rhizobia, form a symbiotic interaction with legumes, leading to the formation of nitrogen-fixing root nodules. Sedentary endoparasitic nematodes, on the other hand, induce highly specialized feeding sites in infected plant roots from...[Show more]
