Physiology of Movements in Stems of Seedling Pisum sativum L. cv Alaska : II. The Role of the Apical Hook and of Auxin in Nutation



Physiology of Movements in Stems of Seedling Pisum sativum L. cv Alaska : II. The Role of the Apical Hook and of Auxin in Nutation



Plant Physiology 70(5): 1401-1404



The relationship between the apical hook and stem nutation in etiolated Alaska pea (Pisum sativum L. cv Alaska) seedlings was explored. The hook and maximum nutational displacement have the same plane of symmetry, and both are affected by light acting through phytochrome. However, the two processes do not appear to be obligatorily coupled. Light effects on nutation involve at least two components, an increase in amplitude as well as an increase in frequency. These components can be separated from one another on the basis of developmental time course or red light fluence. Excision of the plumule, leaving the hook attached to the stem, inhibits photostimulated nutation. This inhibition can be overcome by application of indole-3-acetic acid to the remaining stem. If the hook is also excised, then nutation in the stem cannot be restored by indole-3-acetic acid. It is possible, although not yet proven, that the oscillatory process regulating nutation in the stem is itself localized in the hook and that rhythms in the transport of indole-3-acetic acid are involved.
