Transgenic Plants of Modified Auxin Status and Enhanced Productivity
Indole-3-acetic acid is the principal phytohormone affecting and regulating growth and developmental events and productivity of plants. However, the exogenous application of IAA does not result in desired changes in the real level and distribution of endogenous auxin between compartments within the cell. The optimization of IAA level for growth stimulation is a result of processes of biochemical controls on rates of biosynthesis, oxidation and conjugation and of transport into and out of cells and organs.
