Abstract:
Gibberellins (GAs) are endogenous plant hormones that control key aspects of growth and development such as seed germination, shoot growth, flower induction and development, and fruit expansion. Chemical growth regulators that modify GA biosynthesis are used extensively in horticulture to modify plant stature, increasing production costs, manpower and associated environmental risks. An alternative strategy is genetic manipulation of GA metabolism in plants to induce similar phenotypic changes.
