Extraction and Bioassay of Gibberellins from Fusarium moniliforme

  • Thomas C. Moore


The gibberellins (GAs) are one of the major groups of growth-promoting hormones which, in common with auxins, cytokinins, various growth inhibitors (e.g. abscisic acid) and ethylene, play essential roles in the regulation of growth and development of seed plants.
