- This article describes the role of AUX/LAX auxin influx carriers in plant development, revealing that the auxin influx carrier LAX2 regulates vascular patterning in cotyledons. Although the AUX1/LAX family members share auxin transport characteristics, these transport activities seem to be dependent on their unique cell- or tissue-type expression patterns.
