Description

Gibberellic acid A4 is slightly soluble in aqueous solution (5 mg/mL) and is a member of the classical hormone class, gibberellin.

    CAS Number

    468-44-0

    Molecular Formula

    C19H24O5

    Molecular Weight

    332.40

    Mechanism of Action

    Gibberellins are highly expressed in seed embryos before a plant can use photosynthesis to acquire energy. During this stage, starch serves as a primary energy source and is subsequently degraded by gibberellin induced activity.

    Storage Conditions

    2-8 °C

    Tariff Code

    2932.20.5050

Applications

    Plant Biology Applications

    The plant hormone gibberellin is used for its stimulating effect on cell division and cell elongation, seed germination and flowering in long day plants (Raven et al., 1999).Yancheva and co-workers (2004) used 0.05 mg/l GA3 to promote tissue culture growth. In addition to tissue culture applications, gibberellic acid is used in strawberry to control growth and flowering for out of season cropping (Paroussi et al., 2002).
