Plant Growth Regulators III : Gibberellins , Ethylene , Abscisic Acid , their Analogues and Inhibitors

  title={Plant Growth Regulators III : Gibberellins , Ethylene , Abscisic Acid , their Analogues and Inhibitors},
1.1. NATURAL OCCURRENCE AND PHYSIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY More than 100 members of this group of plant hormones are now known. They all share gibbane ring structures and are either dicarboxylic (CB20B) or monocarboxylic (CB19B), they have all been assigned ‘gibberellin numbers’ (GABxB) and are usually referred to by these rather than by conventional chemical nomenclature. No plant appears to possess all of the gibberellins, some have only been found in fungi and some only in higher plants; nor are the… Expand

Improvement of regeneration in pepper: a recalcitrant species
Dark incubation does not seem to improve organogenesis in pepper, and hypocotyl explants clearly represent a better explant choice—with respect to cotyledonary explants—for the pepper cultivars assayed. Expand
Assessment of the impact of ethylene and ethylene modulators in Citrus limon organogenesis
The results obtained in this study showed that ethylene plays an important role in the organogenesis of mature explants of C. limon. Expand

Improved secondary embryo production in Quercus alba and Q. rubra by activated charcoal, silver thiosulphate and sucrose: influence of embryogenic explant used for subculture
The developmental stage of the embryogenic explant used for subculture significantly influenced embryo production and differentiation of new secondary embryos, with NS being the most effective explant despite being the smallest explant type in terms of size and fresh weight. Expand
Micropropagation of mature Quercus ilex L. trees by axillary budding
The successful micropropagation of mature Quercus ilex trees known as reluctant to in vitro propagation is reported, with improved multiplication and shoot appearance when the BA concentration was sequentially reduced over the culture period. Expand
Estudio de la Capacidad Organogénica en tomate y especies relacionadas: Localización de QTLS implicados y estudio de la influencia del Etileno
Se han identificado seis QTL implicados en la regeneracion localizados en los cromosomas 1, 3, 4, 7 y 8, y cinco de los QTLs proceden del tomate silvestre S. pennellii y uno (SlRg-8) procede de S. Pennellii Correll con alta capacidad de regeneracion. Expand
Effective medium for in vitro sprouting of the buds and multiplication of the plantlets, and identification of the fungal contaminant associated with the explants of Gnetum
This study provides baseline information on the in vitro propagation of Gnetum and thus opens up avenues for more research to be carried out in this field. Expand


Mechanism and Regulation of Ethylene Biosynthesis
Ethylene is a plant hormone which initiates fruit ripening and regulates many aspects of plant growth and development (1). The role of methionine as a biological precursor of ethylene was firstExpand
GROWTH RETARDANTS: Effects on Gibberellin Biosynthesis and Other Metabolic Pathways.

Plant growth retardants are applied in agronomic and horticultural crops to reduce unwanted longitudinal shoot growth without lowering plant productivity by inhibiting gibberellin (GA) biosynthesis. Expand
The role of gibberellin biosynthesis in the control of growth and flowering in Matthiola incana
GAs with 3β-OH and without 13-OH groups are the most important for stem elongation and flowering in M. incana, indicating that a low dose of an acylcyclohexanedione can be a ‘growth enhancer’ for any applied GA that is liable to inactivation by 2β-hydroxylation. Expand
Inhibitors of ethylene responses in plants at the receptor level: Recent developments
Since 1-MCP apparently is non-toxic at concentrations that are active, it may in future be available for regulating the ripening of fruits and preventing the deleterious effects of ethylene in vegetables. Expand
Stimulation of Adventitious Bud Formation in Begonia Leaves by Abscisic Acid
ABSCISIC acid (ABA) is a recently discovered plant hormone originally known to accelerate leaf abscission and inhibit plant growth and affects a number of physiological processes such as seed germination, bud dormancy, leaf senescence, flowering and tuberization. Expand
It was of interest to verify chemllically the identity of the active gas produced by the common green mold of citrus fruits, P. digitatum, which is a particularly promising organism for the study of the mechanism of ethylene formation. Expand
Habituation of plant cells does not mean insensitivity to plant growth regulators
The data show that hormone-independent calluses and cell suspensions can retain some sensitivity to growth hormones, however, differences of responses were observed between the auxin-dependent lines and the habituated lines. Expand
Brassinosteroids Act as Regulators of Tracheary-Element Differentiation in Isolated Zinnia Mesophyll Cells :
It is suggested that the synthesis of brassinosteroids is essential for the differentiation of the cells into TEs and that uniconazole inhibits this differentiation through its inhibitory effect on the biosynthesis of brass inosteroids. Expand
Promotion by gibberellic Acid of polyamine biosynthesis in internodes of light-grown dwarf peas.
The results support the hypothesis that ADC and polyamine content are important regulators of plant growth and reverses the red-light-induced inhibition of ADC activity in etiolated Alaska pea epicotyls. Expand
Quantitation of gibberellins and the metabolism of [3H]gibberellin A1 during somatic embryogenesis in carrot and anise cell cultures
High levels of a GA1-like substance and a reduced ability to metabolize GA1 are correlated with the absence of embryo development, while lowered levels ofGA1- like substance andA rapid metabolism of GA1 into GA8 and GA-conjugates are correlation with continued embryo development. Expand
