Irradiation of homogenates of etiolated barley leaves with red light resulted in an increase in the levels of gibberellin (GA)-like substances as compared to dark controls. When homogenates were fed with [3H]-GA9 there was as incorporation of the radioactivity into a number of other GA's: this process occurred to a greater extent in red light than in darkness, and could be inhibited by boiling the extract prior to addition of the [3H]-GA9.
