UV regulates plant architecture of in vitro-grown mint plants

3 Jan 2023

A new paper published in the journal Agronomy explains that exposing Mentha spicata (L.) plants to UV-B radiation while growing in tissue culture containers, changes the architecture of the plants. These changes were associated with significant alterations in concentrations of several hormones, indicating a regulatory rather than a stress response to UV-B.

The full paper is published online and is Open Access:
