    In the review a spectrum of enzymes genes determining different ways of indole-3-acetic acid

    (IAA) biosynthesis identified at Arabidopsis is given: the !"# gene of antranilat

    phosphoribosyltransferase#$ !"3 gene of tryptophan synthase and family %I genes of

    nitrilase$ catalysing tryptophan-independent way of IAA biosynthesis from precursor indole-3-

    acetonitrile& '"*+ and '",3+# genes (members of family cytochromes "./ genes)$

    biosynthesis from indole-3-butyric acid: the "0A# and "10# genes of pero2isomal membrane

    as genes of numerous family of mitogen-activated protein 6inases7 he au2in-induced genes of

    enzymes participating in biosynthesis and hydrolysis of polysaccharides components of plant

    %ntroduction. Information concerning the hormonal regulatory system in
