Gibberellins and the procera mutant of tomato

  title={Gibberellins and the procera mutant of tomato},
  author={M. George Jones},
The procera mutant of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) has a phenotype which is remarkably similar to that of normal tomatoes treated with exogenous gibberellin (GA), indicating that it might be a GA over-producer. However, analysis of endogenous GAs by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry showed that Procera actually has lower levels of GA20 and GA1 than normal. The reason for these anomalously low GA levels is not clear, as there was no difference between procera and normal plants in their… CONTINUE READING
