Retardation of hypocotyl growth occurred in cucumber seedlings following infection with cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). This corresponded with a reduction in gibberellin-like substances (GA) and an increase in abscisic acid (ABA) and the inhibitor-β complex. The enhanced inhibitory effects of the latter were due mainly to the increase in ABA, as measured by gas-liquid chromatography (g.l.c.). Exogenous treatments with gibberellic acid (GA3) at concentrations of 5 parts/106 enhanced hypocotyl growth in healthy seedlings, but in virus-infected cucumbers the same concentration of the hormone was ineffective. ABA treatment markedly retarded the growth of healthy hypocotyls only when applied at the relatively high concentration of 250 parts/106, whereas it inhibited almost completely the growth of the infected hypocotyls even when applied at a lower concentration of 25 parts/106. While not excluding other contingencies, it is suggested that the suppression of hypocotyl growth induced by CMV is influenced by virus-induced changes in the endogenous levels of GA and ABA which are capable of antagonizing the effect of each other. © 1977.
