High impact information on ARG1

  • ARG1 (ALTERED RESPONSE TO GRAVITY) is required for normal root and hypocotyl gravitropism [1].
  • We propose that ARG1 affects the localization and/or activity of PIN or other proteins involved in lateral auxin transport [1].
  • These data support our hypothesis that ARG1 is involved early in gravitropic signal transduction within the gravity-perceiving cells, where it influences pH changes and auxin distribution [1].
  • These data suggest that ARG1 participates in a gravity-signaling process involving the cytoskeleton [2].
  • We found that mutations in the ARG1 locus of Arabidopsis thaliana alter root and hypocotyl gravitropism without affecting phototropism, root growth responses to phytohormones or inhibitors of auxin transport, or starch accumulation [2].

Associations of ARG1 with chemical compounds

  • Mutations in ARL2 and ARG1 also result in auxin-related expansion of the root cap columella, consistent with a role for ARL2 and ARG1 in regulating auxin flux through the root tip [3].
