Influence of Endogenous Cytokinins on Reverse Mobilization in Cotyledons of Cicer arietinum L: Reproduction of Endogenous Levels of Total Cytokinins, Zeatin, Zeatin Riboside, and Their Corresponding Glucosides



Influence of Endogenous Cytokinins on Reverse Mobilization in Cotyledons of Cicer arietinum L: Reproduction of Endogenous Levels of Total Cytokinins, Zeatin, Zeatin Riboside, and Their Corresponding Glucosides



Plant Physiology 93(3): 1011-1016



The embryonic axis plays an essential role in the mobilization of the main reserves of the cotyledons of seeds of Cicer arietinum L. cv Castellana. This control by the axis of the metabolism of the storage products of the cotyledons largely takes place through the cytokinins, which are transported from the embryonic axis to the cotyledons where the mobilization of reserves begins. The principal regulatory role of the endogenous cytokinins concerns the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins; there is less influence on lipid metabolism. However, each cytokinin seems to have a different role in the mobilization processes. The glucosides, glucosyl zeatin riboside, and glucosyl zeatin act only as storage forms of the hormones. Zeatin riboside affects mainly the mobilization of carbohydrates and has less effect on protein mobilization. Zeatin regulates both the mobilization of carbohydrates and that of proteins and is more marked in the latter case.
