Hormonal interactions in the regulation of the nitrogen-fixing legume-Rhizobium symbiosis

Mathesius, Ulrike


Plant hormones have long been associated with the ability of legumes to form nitrogen-fixing symbioses. During the nodulation program, two events are required: The formation of a new root organ, the nodule, and the successful infection of rhizobia into the root, and later the nodule. Cell-type specific hormone synthesis, perception and downstream responses are required in the epidermis, the root cortex and in vascular tissues to coordinate infection and nodule development. Recent progress in...[Show more]
