Anti-Lodging Effects Of Yucaizol On Vigina Anagularisunder Plant Factory Growth Condition
Brassinosteriods (BRs) are important plant growth hormones playing pivotal role in controlling gene expression
during plant growth and development. Although the functions of BRs in Arabidopsis and rice have been elucidated by using
BR deficient mutant or BR insensitive mutants, knowledge of their physiological roles inazuki bean (Vignaangularis) is still
limited. The aim of this work is using Yucaizol, a specific BR biosynthesis inhibitor developed in our laboratory, to elucidate
the functions of BRs in Vignaangularis growth and development. Specific inhibitors of plant hormone biosynthesis are useful
chemical agents to elucidate the functions of plant hormones. In the present work, we used Yucaizol to determine the effects of
Yucaizol on growth of Vignaangularis seedlings.Yucaizol significantly inhibits the stem elongation of Vigna angularis
seedling. The 50% inhibition of stem elongation of Yucaizol against Vigna angularis seedlings was estimated approximately
0.89 ± 0.2 pmol/plant.
