Abstract

This review focuses on studies with bacteria for which biosynthesis/production of the plant hormones gibberellins have been demonstrated. Actual data on gibberellin metabolism by bacteria are analyzed in comparison with the biosynthetic pathways known for vascular plants and fungi. The potential involvement of gibberellins produced by symbiotic and soil-endophytic microorganisms in plant growth promotion and yield increase is also discussed.
