Application / Usage / Function

6-Benzylaminopurine has various effects such as inhibiting the decomposition of chlorophyll, nucleic acid and protein in plant leaves, keeping green and anti-aging; transferring amino acids, auxins, inorganic salts to the treated parts. It is widely used in agriculture, fruit trees and horticultural crops from germination to harvest. In tissue culture work, cytokinin is an indispensable additional hormone in the differentiation medium. Cytokinin 6-BA can also be used on fruit trees and vegetables, its main function is to promote cell expansion, increase fruit setting rate, and delay leaf senescence. Cytokinins can make cells division in stem tips, root tips, immature seeds, germinated seeds, and growing fruits.

6-Benzylaminopurine can promote the growth of plant cells, inhibit the degradation of plant chlorophyll, increase the content of amino acids, delay leaf senescence, induce the differentiation of buds, promote the growth of lateral buds, and promote cell division. It can also reduce the decomposition of chlorophyll in plants, and has the effects of inhibiting senescence and keeping green.

Because the highly efficient, stable, cheap and easy to use, 6-Benzylaminopurine is widely used and is the favorite cytokinin of tissue culturers. The main role of 6BA is to promote the formation of buds and induce callus formation. It can be used to improve the quality and output of tea and tobacco; the preservation of vegetables and fruits and the cultivation of rootless bean sprouts. It can significantly improve the quality of fruits and leaves.
