2,4-D, a chemical analogue of IAA, is widely used as a growth regulator and exogenous source of auxin. It is believed that they share a common response pathway. Here, we show that a mutant, ${it antiauxin resistant1}$ (${it aar1}$) is resistant to 2,4-D, yet nevertheless responds like the wild type to IAA. That the ${it aar1}$ mutation alters 2,4-D responsiveness specifically was confirmed by analysis of GUS expression in the${it DR5:GUS}$ and ${it HS:AXR3NT-GUS}$ backgrounds, as well as by real-time PCR quantification of ${it IAA11}$ expression. Complementation and RNAi experiments identified a gene that confers 2,4-D responsiveness. The gene encodes a ${it small, acidic protein 1}$with unknown function and present in plants, animals, and invertebrates. These results suggest that SMAP1 is a regulatory component that mediates responses to 2,4-D and that responsiveness to 2,4-D and IAA are partially distinct.
