Recovery of native and applied auxin from the light-grown Alaska pea seedling



Recovery of native and applied auxin from the light-grown Alaska pea seedling



Amer Jour Bot 47(10): 1056-1063



The physiological status of both endogenous and exogenously applied auxin was compared in the epicotyl of the 9-day-old light-grown "Alaska" pea (Pisum sativum L.) by means of agar-diffusion and short-term ether extraction. A detailed analysis of endogenous auxin revealed a linear basipetal decrease in diffusible auxin within the growing region. A decrease in extractable auxin occurred only within the most mature region. The capacity for uptake of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), applied in lanolin paste, was compared in different regions of the epicotyl. The fifth and most apical internode had the greatest capacity for uptake as measured by extraction. A reduced capacity was found in more basal internodes. The transport rate of applied IAA, under conditions of optimal uptake, was 10-12 mm/hr. An application of IAA for 24 hr resulted in a dramatic increase in auxin content throughout the length of the epicotyl compared to that found in the normal control. There was no apparent gradation in content from apex to base. An increase of diffusible auxin was also found, but only in the fourth and third internodes. That no such increase was detected in the basal 3 internodes suggested that the auxin transport system within this region had special properties related to a transition between shoot and root vascular patterns.
