Regulation of gibberellin biosynthesis and stem elongation by low temperature in Eustoma grandiflorum

Hisamatsu, Tamotsu; Koshioka, Masaji; Mander, Lewis


Heat-induced rosetted Eustoma grandiflorum requires low temperature for induction of stem elongation and flowering. Although heat-induced rosetting is associated with a reduction of gibberellin A1 (GA1) content, how thermo-induction affects GA biosynthesis is unclear. Thus, we examined levels of GA, precursors including that of ent-kaurene which is the first committed step in GA biosynthesis. We used uniconazole, an ent-kaurene oxidase inhibitor to estimate the ent-kaurene biosynthesis...[Show more]
