Indole-acetic acid (IAA) and abscisic acid (ABA) were fed throughcomplete liquid medium (containing 2, 4, 8% sucrose) to detached earheads of sorghum. The effect of these phytohormones on interconvertion ofsugarsand their transformation to starch in relation to the activities ofα-, β-amylases, sucrose-synthase (synthesis), sucrose-phosphatesynthase and soluble invertases was studied in the grain. This effect on theuptake of (U-14C) sucrose by detached ear heads and incorporation of14C into free… CONTINUE READING
