Leaves from dark-grown barley (Hordeum vulgare L. var Larker) seedlings grown in the presence and absence of fluridone were used to determine whether or not abscisic acid (ABA) accumulation was necessary for proline to accumulate in wilted tissue. Wilted tissue (polyethylene glycol-treated) leaves from fluridone-grown seedlings did not accumulate ABA but did accumulate proline at a rate that was not different from the non-fluridone-treated leaves. Thus ABA accumulation is not required for… CONTINUE READING
