Brief irradiation of 3-d-old maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings with red light (R; 180 J m-2) inhibits elongation of the mesocotyl (70–80% inhibition in 8 h) and reduces its indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) content. The reduction in IAA content, apparent within a few hours, is the result of a reduction in the supply of IAA from the coleoptile unit (which includes the shoot apex and primary leaves). The fluence-response relationship for the inhibition of mesocotyl growth by R and far-red light closely… CONTINUE READING
