Regulation of enzymatic activity is frequently incorporated into explanations of hormonal action on plants. Two examples are the induction of Alpha-amylase during gibberellic acid - stimulated barley germination and cellulase induction in ethylene-regulated abscission. This paper presents data in favor of the view that regulation of another carbohydrase, Beta-1,3 glucanase, is important in the degradation of sieve tube callose and that a variety of plant hormones control the production of this enzyme.
