The NIN transcription factor coordinates CEP and CLE signaling peptides that regulate nodulation antagonistically

Laffont, Carole; Ivanovici, Ariel; Gautrat, Pierre; Brault, Mathias; Djordjevic, Michael; Frugier, Florian


Legumes tightly regulate nodule number to balance the cost of supporting symbiotic rhizobia with the benefits of nitrogen fixation. C-terminally Encoded Peptides (CEPs) and CLAVATA3- like (CLE) peptides positively and negatively regulate nodulation, respectively, through independent systemic pathways, but how these regulations are coordinated remains unknown. Here, we show that rhizobia, Nod Factors, and cytokinins induce a symbiosis-specific CEP gene, MtCEP7, which positively regulates...[Show more]
