Benzyladenine (BA) inhibited IAA-oxidase and peroxidase activities and ascorbic acid utilization during the first 24 h after treatment, particularly in darkness, but later there was an enhancement of these activities. Changes in peroxidase activity showed an inverse correlation with changes in the level of endogenous Mn++ in BA-treated cucumber cotyledons in the light.
