Sorry, no etymologies found.
TDZ, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring plant compound known as a cytokinin, is not new.
Kinetin N6-furfuryladenine is a form of cytokinin, a plant-derived growth hormone that promotes cell division and slows the aging process in plant cells.
Plants with lower levels of Gn1a have more cytokinin available, which leads to better reproductive development and thus more grains.
They discovered that a gene known as Gn1a controls an enzyme that degrades the hormone cytokinin.
WUS represses the expression of several ARRs in the meristem, which restrict cytokinin signalling
Leibfried A, To JP, Busch W, Stehling S, Kehle A, et al. (2005) WUSCHEL controls meristem function by direct regulation of cytokinin-inducible response regulators.
ARABIDOPSIS RESPONSE REGULATOR (ARR) genes, which are negative regulators of cytokinin signalling, are repressed by
During development, a second feedback mechanism could operate via the cytokinin signalling pathway.
Dr Jiang said TDZ was a synthetic version of a naturally occurring plant compound known as a cytokinin.
Stick cut plants in cytokinin solution and they'll stay green for longer.
