Mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana deficient in gibberellin synthesis (ga1-3 and ga1-6), and a gibberellin-insensitive mutant (gai) were compared to the wild-type (WT) Landsberg erecta line for flowering time and leaf number when grown in either short days (SD) or continuous light (CL). The ga1-3 mutant, which is severely defective in ent-kaurene synthesis because it lacks most of the GA1 gene, never flowered in SD unless treated with exogenous gibberellin. After a prolonged period of vegetative… CONTINUE READING
