Adenine sulfate acts as a cytokinin biosynthesis precursor and is frequently used in plant tissue culture (Sakakibare, 2006).
Plant Biology Applications
Adenine sulfate is a freely soluble cytokinin plant hormone precursor.The
plant hormone cytokinin is predominantly found and produced in plant
root tips and facilitates cell division and shoot formation and delays leaf
senescence (Raven et al., 1999).
The promotion of shoot formation by adenine sulfate was observed by
Jana and Shekhawat (2011). In the study, 5.0 mg/l adenine sulfate resulted
in the largest regeneration rate of Dill in tissue culture; however, this concentration was not verified to be optimum.
For in vitro research use only. Not suitable for human or animal consumption.
