Abstract Mutants that branch profusely in the presence of a growing shoot tip have highlighted the role of graft-transmissible signals that are produced in roots and stem. Orthologous genes in Arabidopsis, pea and petunia are involved in the transmission of a novel long-distance message. These genes show varying degrees of regulation by auxin and an auxin-independent feedback system, and encode enzymes that might act on carotenoid-like substrates. Axillary bud outgrowth is under homeostatic control, involving developmental stages or checkpoints. Perturbation of the long-range messaging and auxin depletion does not guarantee that bud outgrowth will ensue at a particular node.
