Differing requirements for flavonoids during the formation of lateral roots, nodules and root knot nematode galls in Medicago truncatula

Wasson, Anton; Ramsay, Kerry; Jones, Michael G K; Mathesius, Ulrike


In this study, we tested whether the organogenesis of symbiotic root nodules, lateral roots and root galls induced by parasitic root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne javanica) was regulated by the presence of flavonoids in the roots of Medicago truncatula. Flavonoids accumulate in all three types of root organ, and have been hypothesized previously to be required for secondary root organogenesis because of their potential role as auxin transport regulators. • Using RNA interference to silence the...[Show more]
