Description: This article discusses a functional assessment of the Medicago truncatula NIP/LATD (for Numerous Infections and Polyphenolics/Lateral root-organ Defective). The authors show that M. truncatula nip/latd mutants are more defective in their lateral root responses to nitrate provided at low (250 μм) concentrations than at higher (5mм) concentrations; however, nitrate uptake experiments showed no discernible differences in uptake in the mutants.
