Winter rape (Brassica napus L. cv. 601) seedlings were treated with 50 mg.l-1of foliar-applied uniconazole and then exposed to heat stress with a light/dark temperature regime of 43 °C/38 °C for 3 days at the stem elongation stage. Heat stressed plants contained lower endogenous GA3, IAA and zeatin contents than the controls, while ABA content and ethylene level were increased significantly. Uniconazole-treated plants had lower endogenous GA3 and IAA contents, and higher zeatin and ABA contents… CONTINUE READING
