Abstract

[8-14C]Benzylaminopurine (BA) translocation was studied in whole plants of Phaseolus vulgaris L. under three different light regimes (continuous light, 8-hour light + 16-hour dark, dark). Applications were made to the apex, to a cotyledonary leaf, or to the root system. Results showed that no BA basipetal translocation occurred, however BA is easily absorbed by the root system and is translocated acropetally.
