The Autoregulation Gene SUNN Mediates Changes in Root Organ Formation in Response to Nitrogen through Alteration of Shoot-to-Root Auxin Transport

Jin, Jian; Watt, Michelle; Mathesius, Ulrike


We tested whether a gene regulating nodule number in Medicago truncatula, Super Numeric Nodules (SUNN), is involved in root architecture responses to carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) and whether this is mediated by changes in shoot-to-root auxin transport. Nodules and lateral roots are root organs that are under the control of nutrient supply, but how their architecture is regulated in response to nutrients is unclear. We treated wild-type and sunn-1 seedlings with four combinations of low or...[Show more]
