Role of polyamines in the cytokinin-dependent physiological processes II. Modulation of polyamine levels during cytokinin-stimulated expansion of cucumber cotyledons

Abstract

The cucumber cotyledon expansion test was used as a model system to study a possible relationship between cytokinin and polyamines. When kinetin was applied to excised cotyledons incubated in the dark it caused a marked increase in the activity of arginine decarboxylase. As a result of ADC action, putrescine content also rose markedly, whereas the level of… (More)
