Previous work demonstrated that normal levels of endogenous abscisic acid (ABA) are required to maintain shoot growth in well-watered tomato plants independently of effects of hormone status on plant water balance. The results suggested that the impairment of shoot growth in ABA-deficient mutants is at least partly attributable to increased ethylene production. To assess the extent to which ABA maintains shoot growth by ethylene suppression, the growth of ABA-deficient (aba2-1) and ethylene… CONTINUE READING
