Auxin methylation is required for differential growth in Arabidopsis (2018)
Journal Article
Abbas, M., Hernández-García, J., Pollmann, S., Samodelov, S. L., Kolb, M., Friml, J., …Alabadí, D. (2018). Auxin methylation is required for differential growth in Arabidopsis. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, doi:10.1073/pnas.1806565115. ISSN 1091-6490

Asymmetric auxin distribution is instrumental for the differential growth that causes organ bending on tropic stimuli and curvatures during plant development. Local differences in auxin concentrations are achieved mainly by polarized cellular distrib... Read More

Oxygen sensing coordinates photomorphogenesis to facilitate seedling survival (2015)
Journal Article
Abbas, M., Berckhan, S., Rooney, D. J., Gibbs, D. J., Vicente Conde, J., Sousa Correia, C., …Holdsworth, M. J. (2015). Oxygen sensing coordinates photomorphogenesis to facilitate seedling survival. Current Biology, 25(11), doi:10.1016/j.cub.2015.03.060

Successful emergence from the soil is essential for plant establishment in natural and farmed systems. It has been assumed that the absence of light in the soil is the preeminent signal perceived during early seedling development, leading to a distin... Read More
