Protein synthesis and auxin-induced growth: Inhibitor studies

  title={Protein synthesis and auxin-induced growth: Inhibitor studies},
  author={George W. Bates and Robert E. Cleland},
We have compared the effects of cycloheximide (CHI) and two other rapid and effective inhibitors of protein synthesis, pactamycin and 2-(4-methyl-2,6-dinitroanilino)-N-methyl proprionamide (MDMP), on protein synthesis, respiration, auxin-induced growth and H+-excreation of Avena sativa L. coleoptiles. All three compounds inhibit protein synthesis without affecting respiration. The effectiveness of the inhibitors against H+-excretion and growth correlates with their ability to inhibit protein… CONTINUE READING
