Rhizobium-induced elevation in xylem cytokinin delivery in pigeonpea induces changes in shoot development and leaf physiology

Yong, Jean W H; Letham, D Stuart; Wong, Suan Chin; Farquhar, Graham


Inoculation with Rhizobium strain IC3342 induces in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L) Millsp.) a leaf curl syndrome and elevated cytokinin levels in the xylem sap. High nitrogen (N) nutrition was found to inhibit onset of the syndrome which could then be induced by N-free nutrient after development of seven trifoliate leaves. This provided a new system to study the role of xylem cytokinin in shoot development and yielded plants suitable for determining the rate of delivery of xylem cytokinin to the...[Show more]
