  • Description

    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.
