Separation of Effects of Auxin and Ethylene in Pea Roots

Article metrics

Abstract

WE have treated intact pea seedlings (Pisum sativum L. var. Alaska) with four synthetic auxins and found inhibition of primary root elongation, stimulation of radial swelling, proliferation of massed lateral roots and faster evolution of ethylene. Exposure to exogenous ethylene had the same effects, except that lateral root development was normal.
