Abstract: Plant hormones as signalling molecules play an essential role in the control of plant growth and development. Typically, sites of hormonal action are usually distant from the site of biosynthesis thus relying on efficient transport mechanisms. Over the last decades, molecular identification of proteins and protein complexes involved in hormonal transport has started. Advanced screens for genes involved in hormonal transport in combination with transport assays using heterologous systems such as yeast, insect, or tobacco BY2 cells or Xenopus oocytes provided important insights into mechanisms underlying distribution of hormones in plant body and led to identification of principal transporters for each hormone. This review gives a short overview of the mechanisms of hormonal transport and transporters identified in Arabidopsis thaliana.
