The presence of a rooting promoter in paratially purified extracts of avocado (Persea amricana Mill.) organs has been demonstrated using the mung bean rooting bioassay. Extraction with 80% methanol was followed by partition into diethyl ether, paper chromatography (PC) and 3 steps of thin layer chromatography (TLC). The number of roots induced by the rooting promoter in the absence of exogenous auxin was 5 to 7 times higher than that of the water control and 50% higher than by 4-(indol-3-yl) butyric acid (IBA) at its reported optimum concentration. Rooting of tomato, Coleus and young avocado cuttings was also enhanced by the rooting promoter. The rooting promoter was inhibitory in the wheat coleoptile section elongation bioassay for auxins and had slight inhibitory activity in the split pea stem curvature test. The biological properties of the avocado rooting promoter may be comparable to those of α-(p-chlorophenoxy) isobutyric acid (PCIB) which acts as an anti-auxin in certain bioassays and, nevertheless, promotes the rooting of mung bean cuttings. © 1986 Martinus Nijhoff Publishers.
