Plz explain me basic functions of auxins & gibberellins

Dear student, Functions of Auxins: 1. Stimulates respiration. 2. Enhances metabolism due to mobilisation of plant resources. 3. Increases storage of solutes. 4. Cell enlargement. 5. Cambial activity. 6. Cell division. 7. Tissue culture. 8. Root formation. 9. Apical dominance. 10. Inhibition of abscission. 11. Tropic movements. 12. Has feminising effects on some plants. 13. Seedless fruits. 14. Ethylene synthesis. 15. Produces negative potential on cell membrane.Functions of gibberellin:- Stimulates stem elongation by stimulating cell division and elongation. Stimulates bolting/flowering in response to long days. Breaks seed dormancy in some plants which require stratification or light to induce germination. Stimulates enzyme production (a-amylase) in germinating cereal grains for mobilization of seed reserves. Can cause parthenocarpic (seedless) fruit development. Can delay senescence in leaves and citrus fruits. Thanks and regards
