Genetic regulation of the root angle in cereals (2024)
Journal Article
Kirschner, G. K., Hochholdinger, F., Salvi, S., Bennett, M. J., Huang, G., & Bhosale, R. A. (2024). Genetic regulation of the root angle in cereals. Trends in Plant Science, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tplants.2024.01.008

The root angle plays a critical role in efficiently capturing nutrients and water from different soil layers. Steeper root angles enable access to mobile water and nitrogen from deeper soil layers, whereas shallow root angles facilitate the capture o...

Ethylene inhibits rice root elongation in compacted soil via ABA- and auxin-mediated mechanisms (2022)
Journal Article
Huang, G., Kilic, A., Karady, M., Zhang, J., Mehra, P., Song, X., …Pandey, B. K. (2022). Ethylene inhibits rice root elongation in compacted soil via ABA- and auxin-mediated mechanisms. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 119(30), Article e2201072119. https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2201072119

Soil compaction represents a major agronomic challenge, inhibiting root elongation and impacting crop yields. Roots use ethylene to sense soil compaction as the restricted air space causes this gaseous signal to accumulate around root tips. Ethylene...

Developmental roles of AUX1/LAX auxin influx carriers in plants (2019)
Journal Article
Swarup, R., & Bhosale, R. (2019). Developmental roles of AUX1/LAX auxin influx carriers in plants. Frontiers in Plant Science, 10, Article 1306. https://doi.org/10.3389/fpls.2019.01306

Plant hormone auxin regulates several aspects of plant growth and development. Auxin is predominantly synthesized in the shoot apex and developing leaf primordia and from there it is transported to the target tissues e.g. roots. Auxin transport is po...

Rice auxin influx carrier OsAUX1 facilitates root hair elongation in response to low external phosphate (2018)
Journal Article
Giri, J., Bhosale, R., Huang, G., Pandey, B. K., Parker, H., Zappala, S., …Bennett, M. J. (2018). Rice auxin influx carrier OsAUX1 facilitates root hair elongation in response to low external phosphate. Nature Communications, 9(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-018-03850-4

Root traits such as root angle and hair length influence resource acquisition particularly for immobile nutrients like phosphorus (P). Here, we attempted to modify root angle in rice by disrupting the OsAUX1 auxin influx transporter gene in an effort...
