Week 8 lecture notes Hormones Auxin -elongation in coleoptiles -type of auxin IAA acid most common -hormone at the basal end of plant Expansin -cell elongation -cellular wall’s are loosened by the enzymes Cytokinin -works with Auxin -stimulates cytokinesis -fruit, roots, embryos Control of Apical Dominance -cyotkinins, auxins, and others work together to hinder the development of axillary buds -plants can become bushier if the terminal bud is taken off Gibberellins -Stem and leaf elongation and division Fruit growth -need auxin and gibberellins Germination -when gibberellins is released, it signals for the seed to germinate Brassinosterieds -kind of like animal sex hormones -stimulated cell elongation and division Abscisic Acid -hinders growth -aids in dormancy -heavy rain, light, or cold can get rid of ABA Ethylene -a gas produced by plants in time of stress -stressors drought, flooding, pressure, infection Effects of ethylene -senescence -cells and organs die -apoptosis programmed destruction -leaf abscission -altered balance of auxin -fruit ripening -caused by a rapid increase of ethylene Triple response to mechanical stress -Stem elongation slows down -Stem thickens for structural support -Grows horizontally Light and plants -light cues help enable stages of plant growth Photomorphogenesis plant morphology that’s effected by light Action spectrum response to various wavelenths Classes of Light Receptors Blue-light photoreceptors -controls hypocotyl elongation -control stomatal openings -control phototropism Phytochromes -pigments -plant’s response to light
