Auxin is one of the most important phytohormones and participates in a variety of growth and development processes in plants. Recently, Chinese scientists have made breakthrough advances toward our understanding on the molecular mechanisms of auxin signaling transduction.

Key words: auxin, signaling transduction, cyclophilin, Aux/IAA
