A new screening procedure was used to isolate 14 gib mutants of Gibberella fujikuroi with modifications in the production of gibberellins. The production of carotenoids and gibberellins was investigated in the gib mutants and in representative car mutants with various modifications of carotenoid biosynthesis. The determinations of gibberellins were carried out with a simplified fluorescence method. One of the mutants lacked both gibberellins and carotenoids. In many mutants the two pathways… CONTINUE READING
