6-Benzylaminopurine is a plant growth regulator that belongs to the class of first generation synthetic cytokinin used in agriculture.
6-Benzylaminopurine has been used:
- to induce sprouting in plant materials
- in seed germination medium for culturing of seeds
- to modify Murashige and Skoog (MS) media for shoot initiation
6-Benzylaminopurine, benzyl adenine (BAP) is a synthetic cytokinin which together with auxins elicits plant growth and development responses. BAP is a widely use cytokinin supplement to plant growth media such as Murashige and Skoog medium, Gamborg′s medium, and Chu′s N6 medium.
