By Renuka Miglani|Updated : May 3rd, 2023

Aspirants preparing for the CSIR NET examination have to go through a lot of phases where it seems difficult to memorize and understand the concepts very well. While preparing for the CSIR NET Life Science 2023 Exam, the candidates might face problems in memorizing the function of a particular part of the cell. Mind maps are the answer to all your problems regarding memorizing the concepts and information on a certain topic.

We at BYJU'S EXAM PREP have come up with the idea of providing the mind maps for all the units in the Life Science subject to make your preparation easy. These mind maps are developed by our subject experts considering the most important topics that the candidates need to prepare for the CSIR NET 2023 Exam. In this article, we have provided a detailed mind map for the topic of Auxin which comes under System Physiology - Plant in Life Science. 

Mind Map for Auxin 

Auxins are a group of naturally occurring and artificially synthesised plant hormones. They play an important role in the regulation of plant growth. Auxins were initially isolated from human urine.
Auxin means to “enlarge” or “increase”. They induce cell division, differentiation and elongation.
Charles Darwin detected phototropism movement (bending of plants towards light) in the coleoptile of canary grass. He observed that there was some influencer at the tip of the coleoptile, which was responsible for the bending towards the light.
Later, Frits Went isolated and named the substance as “Auxin”, which was responsible for phototropic movement in oat coleoptile.
Kenneth Thimann purified and elucidated the structure of primary auxins, e.g. IAA (Indoleacetic acid).
Naturally Occurring Auxins: Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), Indole butyric acid (IBA)
Artificially synthesized Auxins: 2,4-dichloro phenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D), Naphthalene acetic acid (NAA)
