Abstract: 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…
