Abstract:We studied axillary meristem formation of the lateral suppressor ( Is) mutant of tomato after elevating the endogenous cytokinin levels through introduction of the isopentenyltransferase (ipt) gene from Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Growth and development of several transformants were examined during in vitro culture. Transformants exhibited phenotypes varying in severity and were divided into four classes. A number of the ipt transformants had a normal phenotype, as non-transformed plants. Others showed a mild t… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
