Immature (8-mm), medium mature (11-mm), and mature green (16- and 17-mm) bean seeds (Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Kentucky Wonder and Bountiful) were incubated in gibberellin A(1) solutions for 24 hours at 20 degrees . Extracts from the seeds were separated into nonacidic, acidic ethyl acetate, and acidic butanol fractions. These were chromatographed. The eluates of the chromatograms were tested on Progress No. 9 dwarf peas grown under red light. The level of neutral gibberellin-like substances remained unchanged in immature seed, but they increased markedly in mature green seeds. Coincident with increased levels of the neutral substances, there were significant decreases in acidic ethyl acetate-soluble gibberellin-like substances, including applied GA(1), and in 1 acidic butanol-soluble gibberellin-like substance. Seed incubation in GA(1) brought about increased activity of substance B-II in immature and medium mature seeds. The level of butanol-soluble gibberellin-like substance B-I in seeds of any size was not affected by incubation in GA(1). Considering the marked increases in activity induced in the neutral fraction and the decreases in activity of certain eluates from the chromatograms of the acidic fractions, it was concluded that the neutral fraction may serve as a reserve form of gibberellins in the dry seed. The acidic ethyl acetate substances and substance B-II may be required for normal development of the bean seed.
