The role of flavonoids in root-rhizosphere signalling: opportunities and challenges for improving plant-microbe interactions

Hassan, Samira; Mathesius, Ulrike


The flavonoid pathway produces a diverse array of plant compounds with functions in UV protection, as antioxidants, pigments, auxin transport regulators, defence compounds against pathogens and during signalling in symbiosis. This review highlights some of the known function of flavonoids in the rhizosphere, in particular for the interaction of roots with microorganisms. Depending on their structure, flavonoids have been shown to stimulate or inhibit rhizobial nod gene expression, cause...[Show more]
