Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

There is much interest in understanding the pathways that trigger biosynthesis of the plant hormone auxin. In this issue, Stepanova et al. (2008) and Tao et al. (2008) reveal that a small family of tryptophan aminotransferases catalyze formation of indole-3-pyruvic acid (IPA) from L-tryptophan (L-Trp), the first step in a pathway for auxin biosynthesis.
