The effects of several base analogues and cycloheximide on RNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and cell elongation were studied in excised soybean hypocotyl. None of the pyrimidine analogues tested affected growth or protein synthesis; only 5-fluorouracil appreciably inhibited RNA synthesis. 8-Azaguanine and 6-methylpurine markedly inhibited RNA and protein synthesis and cell elongation. Cycloheximide effectively inhibited both cell elongation and protein synthesis. The results show that 5… CONTINUE READING
