Abstract

Rht3-containing gibberellic acid (GA3) insensitive deembryonated wheat (Triticum aestivum L. var Cappelle Desprez × Minister Dwarf) aleurone, that can be made responsive to GA3 by low temperature, can also be rendered GA3 sensitive by preincubation with indoleacetic acid (IAA). The IAA-induced response of the dwarf selection is concentration-dependent, relatively sensitive, and similar in magnitude to that induced by low temperature. Other auxins also induce GA3 responsiveness to a greater or lesser degree. IAA has no apparent effect on the wild type (rht, tall) selection.
