Gene context of Cytokinin B

  • In alfalfa and clover, Enod40 expression was induced upon BAP treatment, whereas this seems not to be the case in L. japonicus; these results correlate with effects at the cellular level because BAP can induce pseudonodules in alfalfa and clover but not in L. japonicus [25].
  • Induction of cim 1 mRNA accumulation occurred at benzyladenine concentrations as low as 10(-8) M [26].
  • Differential response of PCNA and Cdk-A proteins and associated kinase activities to benzyladenine and abscisic acid during maize seed germination [27].
  • The highest regeneration rate (>90%) and the largest number of shoot clumps per regenerating leaf (>4 shoot clumps/explant) were obtained with leaves of genotype PH2 cultured on MS basal medium supplemented with 17.76 microM BAP and 4.92 microM IBA [28].
  • The association constants (Ka's) of CSBP for 4PU30 and BA were calculated to be 4 x 10(10) M-1 and 3 x 10(9) M-1, respectively [29].
