Plant Root Exudates [thesis]

Akter Pervin
Root exudates comprise primary and secondary plant metabolites that are exuded by roots. They oligomerize with microbial metabolites to form mucilage. Contact with soil particles then induces the formation of a slimy polymer called mucigel that covers roots. Different methods exist to recover root exudates from either soil-grown plants or hydroponic cultures. This low-molecular-weight fraction of analytes can be subjected to GC and LC analyses. The results provide a basis for asking specific
