Introduction. -- It has been known for some time that among the higher plants cell elongation as well as tropistic response is governed by a well-defined chemical substance which is secreted by young leaves and by the apical portions of stems.(1,2) The mechanism by which this substance exerts its effect upon plant cells has, however, remained obscure and it is relatively recently that an attack upon this problem has been made.
