kinetin

or

kinin

a PLANT HORMONE which promotes cell division (CYTOKINESIS) and cell enlargement by swelling, particularly in fruits and seeds. Several effects are similar to those produced by AUXIN, but others are different, e.g. cytokinin promotes lateral bud development and growth while auxin suppresses lateral buds (see APICAL DOMINANCE).

kinetin

see CYTOKININ.

The field experiment was carried out during season 2015 to verify the potential of Kinetin (K) and salicylic acid (SA) in improving the growth, yield and chemical composition of wheat plant under drought stress conditions.
[20], addition of adenine sulfate appears to supplement cytokinin requirement of the nodes that is not fulfilled by BAP or kinetin. The nodes placed on MS supplemented with 0.44 microM BAP and 25.0 mg/l CH showed shoot number 1.2 [+ or -] 0.0, shoot length (mm) 12.6 [+ or -] 0.81 and number of nodes per micro shoot to be 2.0 [+ or -] 0.16.

Culture medium and condition: The shoot buds raised in vitro from stem disc were placed on semi solid half-strength basal MS medium (Murashige & Skoog 1962; MS), supplemented with different concentrations and combinations of 6-Benzyl Amino Purine (BAP) or Kinetin (Kn) at 0.0, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0mg/L, Adenine Sulphate (Ads) (5, 10 and 25mg/L), Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) at 0.0, 0.01, 0.05, and 0.1mg/L or [alpha]-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) at 0.0, 0.01, 0.05 and 0.1 mg/L and 3%sucrose for bud proliferation and multiplication.
