Professor Keiko Torii (ITbM, Nagoya University; HHMI; University of Washington) and her colleagues, Associate Professor Shinya Hagihara, Designated Associate Professor Naoyuki Uchida and Assistant Professor Koji Takahashi, have succeeded in generating a synthetic plant hormone auxin and its receptor. This may lead to precise control of the physiological activities regulated by auxin as well as further understanding of the mechanism of plant growth and development.
