Mutants of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia with increased sensitivity to auxin

Two non-allelic, monogenic recessive mutations, ausl and aus2, have been isolated which result in auxin hypersensitivity in mutant Nicotiana plumbaginifolia plants. At relatively low concentrations of indole-3-acetic acid or 1-naphthaleneacetic acid, the elongation growth of mutant seedling hypocotyls is more inhibited than in the case of the wild type; at… (More)
