Brassinosteroids promote stem elongation in a variety of plants but little is known about the mechanism of action of these plant growth regulators. We investigated a number of physiological and molecular parameters associated with brassinosteroid-enhanced elongation. Continuous growth recordings of soybean (Glycine max L. cv Williams 82) epicotyls showed that there was a 45-min lag before 0.1 [mu]M brassinolide (BR) exerted a detectable effect on elongation. BR caused a marked increase in… CONTINUE READING
