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
