Sur la dégradation de l'acide indolyl-3-acétique par Nectria galligena Bres. var. major Wr.


Nectria galligena is grown in synthetic medium. Experiments are carried out with suspensions of washed mycelium, incubated and stirred with indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) or IAA 2-14C. Auxin degradation is quicker with either acid pH or young mycelium. Two indolic compounds are identified in the course of this metabolism: indole-3-aldehyde (IAld) and indole-3-carboxylic acid (ICA). A correlation is supposed to exist between the increase of auxin contained in cultures of Nectria and IAA catabolism as it lessens with age and alcalin pH.
