General description

Adenine (Ade) is a purine base, which is present in nucleic acids. It binds with ribose to form nucleoside adenosine (A) and attach to deoxyribose to form nucleoside deoxyadenosine (dA).

Application

Adenine has been used in yeast extract supplemented (YES) broth and yeast nitrogen base glutamate (YNG)l media.
Adenine may be used as a plant cell culture additive. Adenine Sulphate (25mg/L) in the culture media such as Murashige & Skoog media improves the frequency of multiple shoot production and recovered the chlorotic symptoms of the leaves.
