Product nameKinetin, Cytokinin phytohormone
DescriptionCytokinin phytohormone that promotes cell division
Adenine-type cytokinin phytohormone used in plant culture media to induce the formation of callus and to regenerate plant tissues from callus. Promotes exon inclusion in some human disease states caused by pre-mRNA splicing errors, including familial dysautonomia and neurofibromatosis. Used in topical applications for its anti-aging properties.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
