However, IAA is also readily soluble in water at neutral pH and therefore sodium phosphate buffer is an attractive alternative to organic solvents for this purpose because aqueous extracts tend to be less heavily contaminated with non-polar substances (Sundberg 3 Identification and Profiling of Auxin and Auxin Metabolites 41 1990). 0 was the most efficient and least destructive extraction solvent for the majority of the tested IAA metabolites (Nova´k et al. 2012). In order to obtain the greatest possible sensitivity and selectivity in the final MS analysis, it is necessary to combine a very efficient extraction method with a purification protocol that yields very high analyte recovery while simultaneously producing low background noise levels.

2002). Therefore, it is believed that IAOx is not an essential intermediate for auxin biosynthesis. Nor is IAOx a universal intermediate for auxin biosynthesis. In summary, after three decades molecular genetics studies in Arabidopsis, the picture of de novo auxin biosynthesis has become clearer. The two-step Trp-dependent pathway catalyzed by TAAs and YUCs is the main auxin biosynthesis pathway that plays essential roles in almost all of the main developmental processes. In retrospect, Arabidopsis probably is not the best model for auxin biosynthesis studies for two main reasons.
