Chemical hijacking of auxin signaling with an engineered auxin–TIR1 pair

Chemical hijacking of auxin signaling with an engineered auxin–TIR1 pair, Published online: 22 January 2018; doi:10.1038/nchembio.2555

A synthetic, orthogonal pair of the plant hormone auxin and its receptor TIR1 was engineered to hijack auxin signaling without interfering with the endogenous system. The synthetic system conclusively demonstrates the role for TIR1 in auxin-induced acid growth.
