Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows:
The gibberellins, chemical compounds exhibiting a variety of remarkable growth regulating properties, are metabolites—products of metabolism—of Gibberella fujikuroi, a fungus which causes a disease of rice characterized by pronounced stem elongation and, ultimately, death of the plant.
