Product name6-Benzylaminopurine, Synthetic cytokinin
Plant cell division factor. Widely used synthetic cytokinin supplement for plant growth media. Stimulates Ca2+ influx (KM = 1 nM) by moss protoplasts. Induces positive inotropic effects through activation of P2X and P2Y (P2-purinergic receptors) in rat atria. Inhibitor of respiratory kinase in plants, and increases post-harvest life of green vegetables.
