Thus, MLE being rich in zeatin, a cytokinin maintained the green photosynthetic area and enhanced grain filling that might contributed towards improved grain yield when applied as SP or in combination with foliar.
The results on shoot multiplication show that BA was indispensable, and the number of shoots produced increased with the increasing of cytokinin concentration.
Table 1: Effects of different cytokinins on shoot induction using leaf blade and petiole explants.
Europe was the largest consumer of cytokinins owing to demand from organic food chemistry and government policies to use eco-friendly agrochemicals.
Thus, these results indicate that the addition of cytokinins (KIN and BAP) to the nutrient medium may provided a concentration of this regulator that is too high relative to the auxin due to an imbalance in the auxin / cytokinin ratio, thus decreasing the rate of callus formation.
Cytokinins have been shown to induce hyperhydricity in many species, usually in a concentration- dependent manner and when other conditions in the culture system are not optimized (Ivanova and Van Staden, 2008, Mocalean et al.
Do you know that coconut water is rich in cytokinins (or plant hormone).
It was intended to examine the synergistic effects of cytokinins and auxin-cytokinin combinations (details in result section) for rapid increase of multiple shoots.
The higher value of TPC shown by MLE treated sample might be attributed to the presence of multi-nutritional components along with auxins, cytokinins etc.
For organogenesis, approximately, 200 [+ or -] 10mg of fresh callus was placed in each culture tube containing different concentrations and combination of cytokinins (BAP, Kn and Ads) and auxins (NAA and 2,4-D).
For many years, auxin, gibberellins, cytokinins, abscisic acid and ethylene are well accepted as the major plant hormones.
