A hormone is a chemical that affects the ways in which an organism functions; it is produced in one part of the plant or animal body but affects many other parts of the body as well. Hormones work by coming in contact with target cells, causing the organism to respond in various ways to the chemical signal. In plants, hormones usually work by influencing cell differentiation, elongation, and division.
Plant Hormones and their Role in Plant Growth and Development
A hormone is a chemical that affects the ways in which an organism functions; it is produced in one part of the plant or animal body but affects many other parts of the body as well. Hormones work by coming in contact with target cells, causing the organism to respond in various ways to the chemical signal. In plants, hormones usually work by influencing cell differentiation, elongation, and division. They also affect the timing of reproduction and germination.
These hormones are divided int o five categories: auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, inhibitors or abscisic acid , and ethylene. The primary function of the auxin hormones is to elongate plant cells in the stem. For instance, auxins are the hormones responsible for phototropism, the growth of a plant toward the light.
Phototropism results from the rapid elongation of cells on the dark side of the plant, which causes the plant to bend in the opposite direction.
The acid growth hypothesis explains this occurrence by speculating that auxins trigger proton pumps in cell membranes, lowering the pH in the cell wall to such an extent that the hydrogen bonds holding its cellulose fibers together break apart. These broken bonds give the cell wall greater flex ibility and expandability, so that more water can enter the cell by diffusion, causing the cell itself to elongate. Auxins are also responsible for adventitious root development, secondary growth in the vascular cambium, inhibition of lateral branching, and fruit development.
In fact, seedless fruits can be artificially created by applying synthetic auxin to plants; this causes fruit to develop even though fertilization and thus seed formation has not occurred. The cytokinin hormones promote cell division and tissue growth, and depend upon the presence of auxins to determine the extent of their activity. When the ratio of cytokinins to auxins is relatively high, stem and leaf growth is stimulated. When, on the other hand, the ratio of cytokinins to auxins is relatively low, root growth is stimulated instead.
The balance between these hormones ensures that the plant invests in both root and shoot growth, so that neither becomes too large or small for the other. Cytokinins are also involved in the development of chloroplasts, fruits, and flowers.
In addition, they have been show n to delay senescence aging , especially in leaves, which is one reason that florists use cytokinins on freshly cut flowers. Gibberellins stimulate growth, especially elongation of the stem, and can also end the dormancy period of seeds and buds by encouraging germination. Additionally, gibberellins play a role in root growth and differentiation, and produce an enzyme that pro motes the conversion of an embryo's starchy food supply into utilizable sugars.
In some plants, these hormones are essential for flowering and fruit development. True to their name, inhibitors restrain growth and maintain the period of dormancy in seeds and buds. The most important of this type of hormone is abscisic acid, which in addition to restraining growth, causes the guard cells, of the stomata to close when the plant is losing too much water.
Ethylene is best known for controlling the ripening of fruits. It also contributes to the senescence aging of plants by promoting leaf loss termed leaf abscission and other changes.
Ethylene can bring buds and seeds out of dormancy, initiate flo wer development, and promote radial horizontal growth in roots and stems. Interestingly, in certain circumstances ethylene can also act as a growth inhibitor, most often in conjunction with auxin. How to Cite This SparkNote. Summary Plant Hormones.

Hormonal Regulation of Plant Growth and Development
Hormones get things done. Think of them as chemical messengers that are made in one place in the body and deliver their message in a totally different place in the body. And just like hot sauce, a little goes a long way. Hormones are usually found in very small concentrations, but boy to they pack a punch! We know hormones cause a lot of changes in humans ah, puberty , but did you know that plants have hormones, too?
Plant growth and development involves the integration of many environmental and endogenous signals that, together with the intrinsic genetic program, determine plant form. Fundamental to this process are several growth regulators collectively called the plant hormones or phytohormones. This group includes auxin, cytokinin, the gibberellins GAs , abscisic acid ABA , ethylene, the brassinosteroids BRs , and jasmonic acid JA , each of which acts at low concentrations to regulate many aspects of plant growth and development. With the notable exception of the steroidal hormones of the BR group, plant hormones bear little resemblance to their animal counterparts Figure 1. Rather, they are relatively simple, small molecules such as ethylene gas and indoleacetic acid IAA , the primary auxin in the majority of plant species.
There are five general classes of hormones: auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, ethylene, and abscisic acid. It is manufactured primarily in the shoot tips in leaf primordia and young leaves , in embryos, and in parts of developing flowers and seeds. Its transport from cell to cell through the parenchyma surrounding the vascular tissues requires the expenditure of ATP energy. IAA moves in one direction only—that is, the movement is polar and, in this case, downward. Such downward movement in shoots is said to be basipetal movement, and in roots it is acropetal.

There are many types of plant hormones. They are used in agriculture and horticulture to have a specific effect. Auxins were the first class of plant hormones to be discovered. Their main function is to help plants grow and auxin stimulates plant cells to elongate. The apical meristem of a plant is one of the main places where auxin is produced.

The Big Five
Но, посмотрев на распростертую на простынях громадную тушу, почувствовала облегчение. То, что она увидела пониже его живота, оказалось совсем крошечным. Немец схватил ее и нетерпеливо стянул с нее рубашку. Его толстые пальцы принялись методично, сантиметр за сантиметром, ощупывать ее тело. Росио упала на него сверху и начала стонать и извиваться в поддельном экстазе. Когда он перевернул ее на спину и взгромоздился сверху, она подумала, что сейчас он ее раздавит. Его массивная шея зажала ей рот, и Росио чуть не задохнулась.
Чем отличаются изотопы? - спросил Фонтейн.
Преступники, террористы и шпионы, которым надоело прослушивание их телефонов, с радостью встретили это новое средство глобальной коммуникации. Электронная почта соединила безопасность обычной почты со скоростью телефонной связи. С тех пор как сообщения стали передаваться по подземным волоконно-оптическим линиям, а не с помощью радиоволн, они оказались полностью защищенными от перехвата - таков по крайней мере был замысел.
