The effects of 24-epibrassinolide (EBR) spray application on gas-exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence characteristics, Rubisco activity, and carbohydrate metabolism were investigated in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. cv. Jinchun No. 3) plants grown in a greenhouse. EBR significantly increased the light-saturated net CO(2) assimilation rate (A(sat)) from 3 h to 7d after spraying, with 0.1 mg l(-1) EBR proving most effective. Increased A(sat) in EBR-treated leaves was accompanied by increases in the… CONTINUE READING
