General description

trans-Zeatin contains a hydroxylated isoprenoid side chain.

Application

trans-Zeatin has been used:
  • as a media supplement for the isolation and culture of pretransitional and transitional embryos
  • as a culture media supplement for incubating alginate strip culture
  • as a growth regulator in modified basal Murashige and Skoog medium

Packaging

5, 10, 50, 250 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Zeatin upon reduction forms zeatin O-glucoside, which is widely present in plants. It possesses transportation and storage functions, along with defence against zeatin oxidases.
trans-Zeatin is a plant cytokinin

Cytokinins (CKs) are plant hormones affecting numerous developmental processes. Zeatin and its derivatives are the most important group of isoprenoid CKs. Zeatin occurs as two isomers: while trans-zeatin (transZ) was found to be a bioactive substance, cis-zeatin (cisZ) was reported...

Zeatins, a major type of cytokinin, are ubiquitous in higher plants, and involve in regulating a wide range of developmental processes. The development of highly specific ligands to zeatins would be very useful in plant biological research. Here we describe...
