General description

Kinetin is an artificial cytokinin. It is named due to its ability to stimulate cell division.

Application

Kinetin has been used:
  • in modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) media for shoot initiation(4)
  • as plant growth regulator (PGR) for shoot induction and proliferation(5)
  • to study its effects on the growth of two chlorophyte Microalgae, Haematococcus pluvialis and Dunaliella salina(6)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Kinetin is an adenine-type cytokinin phytohormone that is used in plant culture media such as Murashige & Skoog media in conjunction with auxins such as indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), 1-napthaleneacetic acid (NAA) or others to induce the fomation of callus and to regenerate plant tissues from callus.
Kinetin is capable of inducing the opening of grass stomata.
