The study is concerned with the influence of ozone on the process of vascular tissue differentiation in plants and the concomitant changes in plant proteins. The test materials consisted of wounded plant intermodes and callus tissues grown, exposed, and studied under controlled laboratory conditions. Ozone was more effective in reducing xylem regeneration in those internodes grown with indole-3-acetic acid than with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid. From the results, it was concluded that plant internodes and callus tissues can be used to study the effects of ozone on certain processes related to plant growth and development.
