A double enhancement of greening in the cotyledons of cucumber seedlings by excision and red light



A double enhancement of greening in the cotyledons of cucumber seedlings by excision and red light



Physiologia Plantarum 61(3): 455-458



Cotyledons excised without the hypocotyl hook from 6-day-old etiolated cucumber (cv. Elem) seedlings accumulated a significantly higher amount of chlorophyll than cotyledons excised with hooks or intact cotyledons. Maximum enhancement of greening was achieved after 2 h of dark incubation following excision.
