Root elongation depends on the action of the gibberellin (GA) growth hormones, which promote cell production in the root meristem and cell expansion in the elongation zone. Sites of GA biosynthesis in the roots of 7‐d‐old Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings were investigated using tissue‐specific GA inactivation in wild‐type (Col‐0) or rescue of GA‐deficient dwarf mutants.
Tissue‐specific GA depletion was achieved by ectopic expression of the GA‐inactivating enzyme AtGA2ox2, which is specific for C19‐GAs,… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
