Abstract
The plant hormone IAA (or auxin) is central to the control of plant growth and development. Processes governed by auxin in concert with other plant growth regulators include development of vascular tissues, formation of lateral and adventitious roots, control of apical dominance, and tropic responses (Went and Thimann, 1937). At the level of cellular physiology, auxin profoundly affects turgor, elongation, division, and cell differentiation, the major driving and shaping forces in morphogenesis and oncogenesis. The molecular mechanisms of auxin action are still unknown, although it is now well established that auxin modulates membrane function and gene expressio...
