Abstract

The plant hormone auxin is a simple molecule similar to tryptophan, yet it elicits a diverse array of responses and is involved in the regulation of growth and development throughout the plant life cycle. The ability of auxin to bring about such diverse responses appears to result partly from the existence of several independent mechanisms for auxin perception. Furthermore, one prominent mechanism for auxin signal transduction involves the targeted degradation of members of a large family of transcriptional regulators that appear to participate in complex and competing dimerization networks to modulate the expression of a wide range of genes. These models for auxin signaling now offer a framework in which to test how each specific response to auxin is brought about.
