Shoots regenerated from auxin-auxotrophic variants of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia were inviable when cultured in vitro in the absence of auxin. Variant shoots survived longer when grafted to wild-type stocks but eventually died after a characteristic pattern of degeneration. The auxin auxotrophs were isolated after mutagen treatment by a total isolation… CONTINUE READING
