Locally Sourced: Auxin Biosynthesis and Transport in the Root Meristem.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Localized maxima of the plant hormone auxin are crucial to root development and meristem maintenance. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Brumos et al. used elegant genetic and grafting experiments to distinguish between the contributions of local and distal auxin sources to auxin maxima generation and root meristem maintenance.
