General description

6-Benzylaminopurine is a plant growth regulator that belongs to the class of first generation synthetic cytokinin used in agriculture.

Application

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.

Biochem/physiol Actions

BAP is an inhibitor of respiratory kinase in plants, and increases post-harvest life of green vegetables.
