    ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is involved in virtually all aspects of plant growth and development (Davies, 1995). Plants produce active IAA by de novo synthesis and by hydrolyzing IAA conjugates (reviewed in Normanly et al., 1995; Bartel, 1997; Normanly, 1997). IAA conjugation activity is widely distributed in the plant kingdom from mosses to angiosperms (Sztein et al., 1995), and most IAA in plant tissues is conjugated via its carboxyl group to sugars, high molecular weight glycans, amino acids, or peptides (Cohen and Bandurski, 1982; Bandurski et al., 1995). Different conjugates may perform different functions in the plant. For example, IAA--Asp is an intermediate in IAA destruction (Tsurumi and Wada, 1986; Monteiro et al., 1988; Tuominen et al., 1994; stin et al., 1998). Other conjugates may serve as reservoirs of inactive IAA that can be hydrolyzed to supply the plant with active hormone, as in maize germination when conjugate hydrolysis provides free IAA to th
