Scholarcy highlights

  • Recent studies suggest that hormones act through a web of interacting responses rather than through isolated linear pathways
  • We propose a classification scheme for different levels of signaling pathway cross-regulation. This scheme is based on which parts of the individual pathways are acting as information conduits between pathways
  • Examples from the recent plant hormone biology literature are used to illustrate the different modes of interaction
