The Effect of -inhibitor on Histogenesis of Balsam Fir Bark Cultured in Vitro
Abstract:Balsam fir bark was cultured aseptically on a nutrient medium. When -inhibitor was added to the agar medium, extreme hypertrophy of phloem parenchyma and ray cells occurred. This hypertrophy gave rise to a conspicuous swelling which resembled the bark malformations, known as 'gout disease', caused by the balsam woolly aphid.
