Integrating transcriptional controls for plant cell expansion

Genome Biol. 2004;5(11):245. doi: 10.1186/gb-2004-5-11-245. Epub 2004 Oct 28.


The plant hormones auxin and brassinosteroid promote cell expansion by regulating gene expression. In addition to independent transcriptional responses generated by the two signals, recent microarray analyses indicate that auxin and brassinosteroid also coordinate the expression of a set of shared target genes.
