General description

Ancymidol, a-cyclopropyl-a-(4-methoxyphenyl)-5-pyrimidinemethanol (EL-53 1), a plant growth retardant is a synthetic pyrimidine analogue. It is also a weak fungitoxic.

Application

Ancymidol has been used as the cytochrome P450 inhibitor to study its effects on Cyanidioschyzon merolae strain.

Packaging

25 mg in poly bottle
100 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ancymidol acts as a monooxygenase inhibitor. It is capable of interrupting gibberellin biosynthesis and growth in plants.
Ancymidol is a pyrimidine-class plant cell endocrine disruptor plant growth regulator that interferes with gibberellin and cellulose biosynthesis.
