A Century of Gibberellin Research

  title={A Century of Gibberellin Research},
  author={Peter Hedden and Valerie M. Sponsel},
  booktitle={Journal of Plant Growth Regulation},
Gibberellin research has its origins in Japan in the 19th century, when a disease of rice was shown to be due to a fungal infection. The symptoms of the disease including overgrowth of the seedling and sterility were later shown to be due to secretions of the fungus Gibberella fujikuroi (now reclassified as Fusarium fujikuroi), from which the name gibberellin was derived for the active component. The profound effect of gibberellins on plant growth and development, particularly growth recovery… CONTINUE READING
