Phaseic acid appears to act as a specific inhibitor of photosynthesis in vivo.

Such inhibition is probably associated with the ‘after-effects’ of moisture stress and with other forms of non-stomatal influences on photosynthesis that follow manipulative treatments (leaf excision, fruit removal).

This naturally occurring inhibitor was extracted from leaves of Vitis vinifera L. and applied to a variety of material(including vine foliage) under laboratory conditions.
