Bouteloua gracilis was grown in defined, axenic culture with and without vesicular–arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizae. Leaves and roots of mycorrhizal and nonmycorrhizal plants were harvested and assayed for cytokinin content using a soybean callus tissue bioassay. Total cytokinin activity was 57 and 111% greater in leaves and roots, respectively, in mycorrhizal over control plants. Cytokinin activities, separated using paper chromatography with water saturated n-butanol as a solvent, doubled in roots… CONTINUE READING
