Benzyl adenine enhanced stomatal opening in isolated epidermal strips of Commelina benghalensis and Tridax procumhens. The stimulation was maximum at a concentration of 5 x io"^ M BA. But kinetin had no remarkable effect on stomatal opening. The activity of benzyl adenine was observed over a narrow range of concentrations, from io~ M to io"* M. The increase in stomatal aperture was more pronounced in Commelina than in Tridax. Presence of benzyl adenine in the medium prevented the stomatal… CONTINUE READING
