Retardation of bean leaf senescence by benzyladenine and its influence on phosphate metabolism.


The levels of glucose, sugar phosphates, and adenosine phosphates were determined in primary leaves of intact bean plants during normal senescence and compared to leaves in which senescence was delayed by application of benzyladenine (BA). In both cases there was a rise with time in the levels of glucose 1-phosphate, glucose 6-phosphate, and fructose 6… (More)
