Auxin induces ethylene formation in several plants1' 2 and in segments cut from roots, stems, and fruits.3 If ethylene alters the metabolism of auxin, as has been suggested,2' 4, 5 then this auxin-induced ethylene formation might interfere with studies of the uptake, transport, and destruction of the applied growth hormone. Moreover, the newly synthesized ethylene would mask or modify a response to applied gas and thus complicate any investigation of the effect of ethylene on auxin metabolism… CONTINUE READING
