In this paper it will be shown that photoperiodic induction of the cocklebur, a short day plant, is inhibited by the pyrimidine 5-fluorouracil ( 5-FU). The studies of other workers have shown that 5-FU inhibits the growth of various kinds of cells and tissues by suppressing the formation of thymidine, and that application of thymidine relieves the inhibitory effects of 5-FU. In these cases 5-FU is an inhibitor of DNA synthesis (2, 4, 5). In other cases, however, 5-FU inhibits RNA… Expand
