The differentiation of secondary xylem fibers was studied in cultured hypocotyl segments of Helianthus annuus L. It is shown that cytokinin is both a limiting and controlling factor in the early stages of fiber differentiation. In the absence of kinetin or zeatin, there was no fiber differentiation. However, cytokinin could induce fiber differentiation only… CONTINUE READING
