Theobroxide induces tubers in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) and flower buds in morning glory (Pharbitis nil) under non-inductive high temperatures


Induction of some plant organs including tubers and flower buds begins with sensing environmental cues, such as photoperiod and temperature in the leaves. Theobroxide has been shown to induce potato tuberization and flower-bud formation in morning glory under non-inductive photoperiodic conditions, stimulating the activity of lipoxygenase (LOX) and the… (More)
