Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The microbes also have genes that provide benefits for the plant, including: genes that may help confer drought resistance and the ability to coexist with toxic metals; genes that produce antimicrobial agents that protect plants from fungal and bacterial infections; and genes that produce plant-growth enhancing "phytohormones" and precursors that poplar cannot produce on its own.

  • Differential growth responses are executed by small-molecule hormones, also called phytohormones, that are synthesized and transported throughout the plant [

  • Coconut water does contain phytohormones, which have antioxidant and anti-platelet properties, so there may be health benefits, but it is very expensive.

  • L-amino acids are also precursors or activators of phytohormones and growth substances enhancing the levels of terpenoids, phenolics, flavonoids, and alkaloids. - Articles related to Scientists uncover mysterious workings of cholera bacteria

  • "Interestingly, the genes that allow the bacteria to metabolize sucrose and the genes that produce the phytohormones are located on a genomic island, suggesting they may have been acquired together via natural horizontal gene transfer," Taghavi said.

  • So the plant makes sugar that helps the bacteria grow and make phytohormones and other compounds that help the plants grow better and healthier.

    EurekAlert! - Breaking News

  • Based on reports that phytohormone abundance changes over the day and the observation that there is time-of-day-specific hypocotyl growth, we hypothesized that genes involved in the generation and action of phytohormones might also be regulated in a time-of-day fashion.

  • Each phytohormone plays an independent as well as an overlapping role in growth, and understanding the interactions of the phytohormones has dominated plant research over the past century.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • The modest increase in hypocotyl length may reflect the fact that there is only a limited set of components in the phytohormone growth pathway available at that time of day, suggesting that the internal coincidence with other phytohormones is also important for growth.

  • At least six classes of phytohormones nonredundantly control growth [1].
