I have a student who is interested in isolating and characterizing
terpenes in Arabidopsis. As a starter project, we thought that she should
try to isolate gibberellic acid and abscisic acid, just to familiarize us
with the extraction and TLC techniques. We have had some difficulty in
finding protocols to do this. Can anyone point us to a reference that has
such a protocol, or send us a protocol? Thank you.
