No Home without Hormones: How Plant Hormones Control Legume Nodule Organogenesis

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperReviewResearchpeer-review

Legume nodules are specialized symbiotic organs that develop to facilitate efficient nitrogen fixation. This review discusses how plant hormones regulate the expression of symbiotic genes and the process of nodule development. Manipulating these hormone-symbiosis interactions is essential for improving legume crops to support nitrogen fixation in various environments and for engineering nitrogen fixation in cereal crops.
