EXPERIMENTS in which auxin has been supplied to either the morphologically apical or basal ends of coleoptile sections have been carried out by Aberg and Khalil1 and by Housley et al.2. Both investigations demonstrated that more growth occurred when the apex-to-base auxin transport system could operate, that is, when the apical ends were in contact with the auxin. The present communication confirms this result and shows how the method can be used to investigate auxin transport and its inhibition.
