It appears that a more general PGP effect, possibly one based on phytohormone production, may also be occurring.
In taxa where phytohormones rather than sex-determining genes control gender expression, cytokinins are associated with reproduction (e.
However, external factors like phytohormone, shaking speeds, pH, and medium play an important role in gymnemic acid production in suspension cultures (Devi et al.

Auxin is an important phytohormone which controls cotton fiber development and differentiation.
The past decade researchers have mainly focused on the analyses of phytohormone gradients and mobile transcription factors to explain patterning.
Phytohormone inactivation can occur through the combination of sugars derived from hydrolysis of sucrose, glucose and fructose, thereby altering the balance of active molecules of auxin and cytokinin (CORUZZI; ZHOU, 2001), directly affecting adventitious root formation in vegetative propagules (BHARDWAJ; MISHRA, 2005).
The method gives physiologists a rapid way to examine how plants use complex phytohormone interactions--called "signaling crosstalk"--to coordinate growth, development, and dynamic responses to stress.
