Biochem/physiol Actions

2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) is a synthetic plant hormone (auxin) that promotes processes such as somatic embryogenesis and selective gene transcription. It is also a herbicide that defoliates broad-leafed plants. 2,4,5-T together with 2,4-D comprises the defoliant Agent Orange.
