Description

Adenine sulfate is a purine nucleobase involved in a variety of cellular processes and is one of five nitrogenous bases involved in nucleic acid synthesis. In addition, adenine serves as the purine base in adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  Adenine is a component of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD).

Applications

    Plant Biology Applications

    Adenine sulfate is commonly used as a media supplement to serve as a cytokinin biosynthesis precursor. Adenine sulfate promoted organogenesis and in vitro flowing of dill, a medically important species to the pharmaceutical industry (Jana and Shekhawat, 2010). The addition of adenine sulfate enhanced organogenesis in Vitex vinifolia, a shrub popular for its medicinal use (Samantaray, 2013).
