Long-distance transport of phytohormones through the plant vascular system.

Abstract : Phytohormones are a group of low abundance molecules that activate various metabolic and developmental processes in response to environmental and endogenous signals. Like animal hormones, plant hormones often have distinct source and target tissues, hence ensuring long-range communication at the whole-plant level. Plants rely on various hormone distribution mechanisms depending on the distance and the direction of the transport. Here, we highlight the recent findings on the long-distance movement of plant hormones within the vasculature, from the physiological role to the molecular mechanism of the transport.
