GA3 as well as SA increase the protein content of the stem and the leaves at 1 day under both 8- and 24-h photoperiods. A new protein band with Rm 0.47 seems to be associated with floral bud initiation as it develops within 1–3 days in the stem as well as in the leaves of plants exposed to inductive treatments regardless of whether the induction is caused by 8-h photoperiods or by treatment with GA3 of SA under 24-h photoperiods. Another band with Rm 0.23 developed only in the stem of water-as well as GA3- or SA-treated plants under 8-h photoperiods. It may possibly be associated with extension growth.
