It is known that the expression of anthocyanins depends on internal factors, such as abscisic acid (S-ABA), which induces the MYB1A transcription factor, protein that regulates the transcription of genes that make up the biosynthetic route of anthocyanins(JEONG et al., 2004).
In wheat seedlings, salicylic acid at 50 uM produced accumulation of both indole acetic acid (IAA) and abscisic acid (Shakirova et al., 2003).
The main control mechanism of germination is the hormonal balance between Abscisic acid (ABA) and Gibberellins (GA).
Plants produce a wide variety of plant hormones including auxins, gibberellins, abscisic acid, cytokinins and ethylene (GONCALVES; SOUSA; VELINI, 2015).

dietary survey (published in JAMA in 2016), which revealed that approximately 92% of the population might have a deficient intake of abscisic acid (ABA)--a nutrient that assists with the uptake of blood glucose into cells--due to their less than adequate intake of fruits and vegetables.
Reduced growth rate is a consequence of diminished leaf stomata aperture due to waterlogging, as it stimulates the production of abscisic acid (ABA) by the roots diminishing gas exchange rate; therefore, as observed in our experiment, no wilting was noticed throughout the time of experiment duration, because the elevated presence of ABA on leaves are related to water maintenance rather than water loss.
The substance inhibiting sprouting in the bulbs of Allium wakegi has been proved to be abscisic acid [13].
For abscisic acid (ABA) treatment, plants were collected at 3 and 6 hours after being sprayed 3 times with 100 [micro]M ABA [32].
