What is it?
It’s a synthetic cytokinin, a plant growth regulator or plant hormone that supports the development of plants when added to growth media.
It influences plant growth and development, sets blossoms, and stimulates fruit richness by stimulating cell division.
It modifies MS media for shoot initiation in cultures
It stimulates seed germination.
It’s an adenine-based cytokinin that’s perfect to be supplemented with culture media including MS media, Gamborg’s media, and Chu’s N6 media.
