Abstract

Auxin interacts with dibasic amino acids forming charge-transfer complexes. The interaction is of hydrophilic character, the strength of interaction increasing with the logarithm of auxin concentration. Sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium ions decrease the strength of interaction, while their inhibitory effect increases with increasing concentration and ion charge.
