Applications

    Plant Biology Applications

    Thidiazuron shows cytokinin-like characteristics with the most potent effect out of nine other cytokinin-like compounds. Thidiazuron has since then been the focus of many studies in plant cell tissue culture and seems to be a powerful regulator of various morphogenic processes. Thidiazuron use can induce callus formation, somatic embryos, adventitious shoot formation, and axillary shoot proliferation (Schulze, 2007).
