Levels of IAA, zeatin, [9R]Z, diHZ, diH[9R]Z, iP, and [9R]iP were determined by the same procedures with minor modifications (Hess, 1992).
Less reduction in growth and yield observed in present study by foliar spray of MLE and BAP in drought stressed wheat plants could be attributed to hormonal influence especially rich zeatin contents of moringa leaves.
Since leaves of moringa are rich in zeatin, it can be used as natural source of cytokinin (Fuglie, 1999).
These leaf extracts are also source of many plant growth regulators including zeatin, a cytokinin, vitamins and several mineral elements (Yasmeen et al.
Thus, in the present study, we examined the correlation between CsEXP10 gene expression and the fruit diameter and length, single fruit weight, and the correlation between CsEXP10 gene expression and levels of endogenous hormones including indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), gibberellic acid (GA3), ABA, and zeatin riboside (ZR).
