Abstract

Treatment with insulin, triiodothyronine or serotonin resulted in increases of root length, root weight, coleoptile weight and mitotic index of germlings from barley seeds at concentration of 10-8 M. All three hormones were superior in activity to the natural and synthetic plant hormones (3-indoleacetic acid, naphthylacetic acid, trichlorophenoxyacetic acid) tested for comparison. The experimental observations suggest that plant cells also have receptors to which hormones of vertebrates can bind, and that plants cells also respond to such hormones.
