It was shown by Went(7) that leaf growth in etiolated pea seedlings is primarily controlled by substances supplied from the cotyledons. Vein growth is controlled by auxin,(2) while growth of the mesophyll is independent of auxin, and it is the factors concerned in the growth of the latter which we will discuss in this paper. In a recent paper(3) a bio-assay for these factors was described in detail, as well as a variety of sources, and so will be discussed only briefly here.
