Auxin–ethylene interactions in rice roots

Zhou et al. explore the links between ethylene and auxin responses in rice. https://doi.org/10.1093/plcell/koac250  Background: The phytohormones ethylene and auxin play important roles in developmental regulation and environmental acclimation in plants. Ethylene promotes the accumulation of the master transcription regulators ETHYLENE INSENSITIVE3/EIN3-LIKE1 (EIN3/EIL1). Auxin triggers the degradation of Auxin/Indole-3-Acetic Acid proteins to release AUXIN RESPONSE […]
