WHAT DOES GIBBERELLIC ACID MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gibberellic acid

Gibberellic acid is a hormone found in plants. Its chemical formula is C19H22O6. When purified, it is a white to pale-yellow solid. Gibberellic acid is a simple gibberellin, a pentacyclic diterpene acid promoting growth and elongation of cells. It affects decomposition of plants and helps plants grow if used in small amounts, but eventually plants develop tolerance to it. GA stimulates the cells of germinating seeds to produce mRNA molecules that code for hydrolytic enzymes. Gibberellic acid is a very potent hormone whose natural occurrence in plants controls their development. Since GA regulates growth, applications of very low concentrations can have a profound effect while too much will have the opposite effect. It is usually used in concentrations between 0.01 and 10 mg/L. GA was first identified in Japan in 1935, as a metabolic byproduct of the plant pathogen Gibberella fujikuroi, which afflicts rice plants; fujikuroi-infected plants develop bakanae, which causes them to grow so much taller than normal that they die from no longer being sturdy enough to support their own weight. Gibberellins have a number of effects on plant development.
