1. Both the acid-soluble fraction and the nucleic acid fraction of wheat embryos were extensively labelled after incubation for 6hr. in the presence of [8-(14)C]adenine. Subsequent incubation in the absence of labelled adenine resulted in no loss of radioactivity to the medium during a 48hr. period. Radioautography indicated that during this period there was a continuous increase in the radioactivity present in the acid-insoluble fractions of the root and leaf tissues relative to that present… CONTINUE READING
