Effects of Light and Growth Regulators on Leaf Unrolling in Barley


The influence of light, gibberellic acid, and abscisic acid on unrolling of etiolated barley leaf segments was investigated. Gibberellic acid stimulated unrolling of both illuminated and nonilluminated leaf segments. In contrast, abscisic acid prevented light-stimulated unrolling and abolished the slight unrolling of segments maintained in the dark.
