UV-B-induced Inhibition of Stem Elongation and Leaf Expansion in Pea Depends on Modulation of Gibberellin Metabolism and Intact Gibberellin Signalling

Information on the involvement of elongation-controlling hormones, particularly gibberellin (GA), in UV-B modulation of stem elongation and leaf growth, is limited. We aimed to study the effect of UV-B on levels of GA and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) as well as involvement of GA in UV-B inhibition of stem elongation and leaf expansion in pea. Reduced shoot… CONTINUE READING
