Plant Development: Auxin in Loops

Curr Biol. 2005 Mar 29;15(6):R208-10. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2005.03.012.

Abstract

Concentration gradients of the hormone auxin are associated with various patterning events in plants. Recent work has refined our picture of the complex and dynamic system of auxin transport underlying the formation of these gradients.
