Defining the function and mechanism of YUC1 in tryptophan-dependent indole-3-acetic acid metabolism

Jerry Cohen, PI; Hegeman Co-PI

The goal of this project is to characterize the reaction mechanism of the YUCCA protein in indole-3-acetic acid synthesis and use that knowledge to enhance our understanding of auxin metabolism in vivo.

This project was funded by the NSF via the EAGER mechanism (MCB-1203438).
