Abstract

Growth studies with Lemna minor revealed the additive and synergistic growth-inhibiting properties of the canaline-urea cycle amino acids. Simultaneous canavanine and canaline treatment caused an additive reduction in frond production. Ureidohomoserine interacted with canaline or canavanine to affect synergistically L. minor growth by enhancing individual canavanine or canaline toxicity and increasing the additive growth reduction caused by canavanine plus canaline. The ornithine-urea cycle amino acids effectively counteracted both the additive and synergistic growth-inhibiting properties of the canaline-urea cycle compounds.
