The effect of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), indole-3-pyruvic acid (IPA) and their synergetic effects on biochemical contents on the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Given the conditions of this experiment, it is possible to conclude that considering rooting induction of Drimys brasilensis semi-hardwood cuttings, the best results came from cuttings prepared with two leaves, and that application of indole-3-butyric acid is not necessary.
Effect of indole-3-butyric acid on the endogenous indole-3-acetic acid and lignin contents in soybean hypocotyl during adventitious root formation.
The active ingredients in Dip and Grow[R] are indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) and naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) in an isopropanol/ethanol solution.
Culture medium and condition: The meristem (apical and axillary) was placed on semi-solid basal MS (Murashige and Skoog 1962) medium supplemented with different concentrations and combinations of 6-benzylaminopurine (BA: 0.0, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 mg/l), kinetin (Kn: 0.0, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 mg/l), and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) or indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) (0.0, 0.1, 0.25 and 0.5 mg/l) for shoot proliferation and multiplication.
Elongated shoots were rinsed in sterile distilled water and sub-cultured for rooting on MS medium containing 0.5 mg L-1 of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) and 1.2 mg L-1 of indole acetic acid (IAA) and on PGR-free MS medium.
Although auxin IAA (indole-3-acetic acid) was the first plant hormone to be used for stimulating adventitious root formation [38], the "synthetic" auxin IBA (Indole-3-butyric acid) is worldwide used to induce rooting in many plant species and in some cases more efficiently than IAA [13, 39-41].
Inputs to the active indole-3-acetic acid pool: de novo synthesis, conjugate hydrolysis, and indole-3-butyric acid b-oxidation.
Suprava, Turia local, Suruchi and [V.sub.3][S.sub.18] was achieved on half-strength basal Murashige and Skoog's medium supplemented with 0.5-1.0 mg/l either indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) or indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) and 2% (w/v) sucrose within 7-9 days of culture.
When the shoot explants were transferred to growing media containing indole-3-butyric acid, an auxin, the number of developed roots decreased as the auxin concentration increased (Janaki and Manoharan 2012; Vats et al.2014).
