Abstract: Application of 1 ppm zeatin raises the respiration rate (measured by the Warburg method) of leaf mesophyll protoplasts of Petunia hybrida by about 50% after 4 h; afterwards there is a rapid decrease. While the rate of respiration in the controls rises after 5 to 6 h, 1 ppm zeatin has a strong inhibitory effect. When the protoplasts are incubated with 0.1 ppm zeatin, the rise in the rate is much slower, and after 7 h the rate is 30 % higher than in the controls. Abscisic acid (10 ppm) decreases the respiration rate so that after 5h it is less than half that of the controls. Later on there is a rise in the controls, perhaps caused by senescence promoting effects of abscisic acid. The photosynthetic rate of the mesophyll protoplasts measured by 14CO2 fixation decreases with increasing age of the preparation. The protoplasts previously incubated with zeatin for 1 to 3 h show an increase in photosynthesis: with 0.1 ppm zeatin the 14C-fixation rate is higher the longer the hormone could operate. With 1 ppm zeatin we get a typical optimum curve similar to that for respiration. These optimum curves indicate the inhibitory effect of high concentrations of zeatin on respiration and photosynthesis.
