  • The axr2 mutation of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. confers resistance to the plant growth hormones auxin, ethylene and abscisic acid. In addition, mutant plants have a pronounced dwarf phenotype and display defects in both shoot and root gravitopism. To further characterize this mutant we have determined the phenotype of both dark- and light-grown mutant seedlings. We find that the height of axr2 hypocotyls is reduced in dark conditions compared with wild-type seedlings and that both dark… CONTINUE READING
