Abstract

IT is increasingly evident that endogenous kinins are involved in cell division in plants. Van Overbeek1 reviewed in 1962 their possible role in fruit development. Several investigators have demonstrated their presence in a number of fruits including the peach2–6. In studies of peach fruit development we have found that alcoholic extracts of endosperm and embryo tissues show pronounced kinin activity.
