Abstract

© Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2020. Rhizobacteria are known to produce a variety of signal molecules which may modify plant growth by interfering with phytohormone balance. Among the microbial signals are phytohormones, known to contribute to plant endogenous pool of phytohormones. The current chapter describes different methods to study the regulation of gene expression in root apical meristem in response to rhizobacterial inoculation. We describe protocol for the detection of in planta modulation of CKs and IAA by rhizobacteria and their impact on root growth, dissecting the underlying plant signaling pathway by RNA sequencing.
