kinetin

(kī`nətĭn), one of a group of chemically similar plant hormones, the cytokinins, that promote cell division. In some instances kinetin acts together with another hormone, indoleacetic acid, or auxinauxin
, plant hormone that regulates the amount, type, and direction of plant growth. Auxins include both naturally occurring substances and related synthetic compounds that have similar effects. Auxins are found in all members of the plant kingdom.

; in other cases it acts in opposition to auxin.

All possible combinations of Kinetin (KIN) (0; 0.207; 0.414; 0.621 and 0.828[micro]M) and Picloram (PIC) (0; 2.07; 4.14; 6.21 and 8.28[micro]M), which produced 25 treatments were performed.

Lower portions of callus growth (84% and 69%) were observed when WPM media were supplemented with kinetin and TDZ (1.0 mg [L.sup.-1]), respectively (Figure 3).
(Gogoi and kumaria 2011) reported that O.tenuiflorum developed frequent shoot formation when cultured on MS basal medium having 26.85uM, NAA and 02.32 uM Kinetin. This technique provide a key to control the stress homogeneity and cellular behavior (compartmentalisation of vacuoles) under salinity (Lutts et al.,2004).Plant tissue culture was proved to be better than conventional breeding programmes as it provided fundamental research tools to understand the adaptation of plants toward salt stress (Rain., 1980).
Hydroxy acids are often used as natural exfoliants, copper peptides enhance collagen production and the skin's natural healing processes, and kinetin is rather effective at treating discoloration.
