Salisbury and Bonner (13) have shown that the pyrimidine, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), when applied either to the apical vegetative bud or the leaf just prior to the photoinductive dark period inhibits the development of the floral primordia. The inhibitory effect of 5-FU could be reversed by applying orotic acid at the same time as the application of 5-FU. Later, Bonner and Zeevaart (2) showed that 5-FU inhibited the incorporation of orotic acid into both RNA and DNA. In general, DNA synthesis was… Expand
