S(+)-2,4-Diaminobutyric acid is at least 20 times more potent than the R(-) stereoisomer as an inhibitor of the sodium-dependent uptake of 4-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in rat brain slices. Both isomers, however, are equipotent as inhibitors of sodium-independent binding of GABA to membranes from rat brain. The latter finding may be relevant to the reported(More)
The induction of flowering by one long day (LD) in the grass Lolium temulentum is most closely mimicked by application of the gibberellins (GAs) GA(5) or GA(6), both of which occur naturally. These gibberellins promote floral development but have little effect on stem elongation. Endogenous GA(5) and GA(6) contents in the shoot apex double on the day after(More)
In this study, we investigated seed and auxin regulation of gibberellin (GA) biosynthesis in pea (Pisum sativum L.) pericarp tissue in situ, specifically the conversion of [14C]GA19 to [14C]GA20. [14C]GA19 metabolism was monitored in pericarp with seeds, deseeded pericarp, and deseeded pericarp treated with 4-chloroindole-3-acetic acid (4-CI-IAA). Pericarp(More)
The endogenous gibberellins in immature seeds of Prunus persica were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Eleven known gibberellins, GA(3), GA(9), GA(17), GA(19), GA(30), GA(44), GA(61), GA(63), GA(87), GA(95) and GA(97) were identified. Additionally, several hitherto unknown gibberellins were detected and their putative structures were(More)
