Bleaching (interference with the production and/or accumulation of potentially green tissues) of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh by Streptomycin (SM) is followed by severe inhibition of expansion of leaves, elongation of stem internodes, coleoptiles and roots. Arabidopsis shows no enhancement of growth when sugar is supplied to the medium, and it was found that Gibberellic acid has an antagonistic effect on growth inhibition of SM. Seeds germinated in darkness in SM-containing medium when subcultured on SM-free medium in darkness and transferred to light, turned green normally. Seeds germinated in light in SM-containing medium stay bleached permanently, even after subculturing in SM-free medium in light.
