And, in fact, to suggest that any kind of plant hormone is a specific organ-forming substance is misleading in view of our present knowledge that each kind of hormone influences mUltiple developmental processes. The discovery of auxins was the outcome of ~xperiments on phototropism and, to a lesser extent, geotropism. Charles Darwin, better known generally for his theory of evolution, was the first investigator in the field of auxinology. Darwin was interested in plant movements, especially phototropism, and his observations, published in 1880 in a delightful book entitled The Power of Movement in Plants, led ultimately to the definitive discovery of auxin.
Synthesis of new proteins using preformed mRNA (translational control); and 4. activation of preexisting enzymes (posttranslational control). Another mode of control which has been demonstrated in some animal and primitive plant systems but which has not yet been shown in higher plants is selective gene replication. , synthesis of unique DNA molecules from a specific portion ofthe total genome) is the amplification of ribosomal RNA genes (rDNA) in oocytes of amphibians. The extra copies of the rDNA genes are contained in nucleoli and serve as templates for the extraordinary demand for ribosomal RNA synthesis in immature oocytes.
