Plants acquire numerous nutrients from the soil. In addition, nutrients elicit many physiological and morphological responses especially in roots. Recently, there has been significant progress in identifying the sensing and regulatory mechanisms of several essential nutrients. In this review, we describe the newly identified signaling components of nitrate, ammonium, and potassium, focusing specifically on the initial sensing steps. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
