The function of zeatin

- Jul 25, 2020-


Zeatin is a kind of natural plant cytokinin, which exists in higher plants. It was first isolated from tender corncob, and then it was found in coconut milk. As a cell growth regulator, it can not only promote lateral bud growth, stimulate cell differentiation (lateral dominance), promote callus and seed germination, but also prevent leaf senescence, reverse the toxic damage to bud and inhibit excessive root formation. High concentration of zeatin can also produce adventitious bud differentiation.
