Evidence that Auxin-induced Growth of Soybean Hypocotyls Involves Proton Excretion.


The role of H(+) excretion in auxin-induced growth of soybean hypocotyl tissues has been investigated, using tissues whose cuticle was rendered permeable to protons or buffers by scarification (scrubbing). Indoleacetic acid induces both elongation and H(+) excretion after a lag of 10 to 12 minutes. Cycloheximide inhibits growth and causes the tissues to… (More)
