This study concerns the effects of four different classes of plant growth regulators on root morphology, patterns of growth and condensed tannin accumulation in transgenic root cultures of Lotus corniculatus L. (Bird's-foot trefoil). Growth of transformed roots in 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) resulted in decreased tannin levels relative to controls at concentrations of 10-6 M and above, while gibberellic acid (GA3) inhibited tannin accumulation at concentrations of 10-7 M and above… CONTINUE READING
