As phytohormones lie at the very core of molecular mechanisms controlling the plant physiology and development, they have long been hypothesized to be involved in insect-induced plant manipulations. Cytokinins (CKs) are phytohormones now widely recognized to be utilized by leaf-mining and gall-inducing insects in the control of the physiology of their host plant. In some leaf-mining moth species, larvae can supply the hormones themselves, bacterial symbionts contributing to the production of CKs. Our objectiv…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
