Abscission of cotton flower buds and petioles caused by protein from boll weevil larvae

, : Abscission of cotton flower buds and petioles caused by protein from boll weevil larvae. Plant Physiology 44(6): 903-906

At State College, Mississippi, protein extracted from larvae of Anthonomus grandis Boh. caused abscission of cotton flower buds and debladed petioles. Abscission of buds was preceded by a rapid and persistent flaring of bracts; cell proliferation was induced in the abscission zone of debladed petioles.
