Investigating fluroxypyr resistance in Bassia scoparia
Synthetic auxin herbicides are designed to mimic indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), an integral plant hormone affecting cell growth, development, and tropism. Recent developments in synthetic auxin herbicide research have produced several new reports of synthetic auxin resistant weeds and novel resistance mechanisms, including resistance by cytochrome P450 metabolism to mutations in auxin co-receptors. In this document, we investigate specific genes in the auxin signaling pathway that may be involved in weed resistance to the synthetic auxin herbicide fluroxypyr, an economically important method of ...
