The aim of the present study is to address the type of correlation that may exist between phenolic compounds and vine rhizogenetic potential by analyzing some phenolic compounds in the Carignan merithallus. Phenolic compounds were analyzed by HPLC in the young shoots (or merithallus) of Carignan vine (Vitis vinifera L.) and we established a correlation between the studied compounds and the rhizogenetic potential of shoots during the phases of bud dormancy and end of dormancy, taking into account the position effect on shoots. This work was carried out for the first time on this type of vine. Among the studied phenolic compounds, we observed a negative correlation between coumarin and rhizogenetic potential of Carignan vine. In contrast, positive correlations were found with naringin and syringic acid. Obtained results confirmed the fact that the action of phenolic compounds is complex and might be qualified as cofactors that interact with auxin on rhizogenesis.
