Abstract

Roots anchor plants to the soil and are essential for a successful plant growth and adaptation to the environment. Research on the primary root in the plant model system Arabidopsis thaliana has yielded important advances in the molecular and cellular understanding of root growth and development. Several studies have uncovered how the hormones brassinosteroids (BRs) control cell cycle and differentiation programs through different cell-specific signaling pathways that are key for root growth and development. Currently, an important challenge resides in the translation of the current knowledge on Arabidopsis roots into agronomically valuable species to improve the agricultural production and to meet the food security goals of the millennium. In this chapter, we characterize the primary root apex of the cereal Sorghum bicolor (L. Moench) (sorghum), analyze the physiological response of sorghum roots to BRs, and examine the phylogeny of the BRASSINOSTEROID INSENSITIVE1-like receptor family in Arabidopsis and its orthologous genes in sorghum. Overall, we support the use of sorghum as a suitable crop model species for the study of BR signaling in root growth and development. The methods presented enable any laboratory worldwide to use sorghum primary roots as a favorite organ for the study of growth and development in crops.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 June 2017.
All research outputs
#9,125,124
of 11,400,239 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#3,894
of 7,730 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#227,957
of 321,689 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#741
of 1,458 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,400,239 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,730 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 321,689 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,458 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
