Application Notes
6-Benzylaminopurine(BA) is one of the most popular cytokinins used to stimulate in vitro shoot development. It is often used in combination with an auxin, e.g., Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), Napthaleneacetic acid (NAA), Indole-3- butyric acid (IBA).

BA is active across a broad range of plant species. Typical working concentration of BA is between 0.1 – 5.0 mg/L. It has been reported that 5-10 mg/L of BA is an optimal range for shoot multiplication of banana culture1 ; while 1.0 and 2.0 mg/L of BA have been used for blackberry culture. 2 At PhytoTechnology Laboratories® most cultures (e.g., Achimenes, African violet, ajuga, begonia, hosta, syngonium, etc.) are maintained on MS medium supplemented with 1 mg/L of BA and 0.025 mg/L of NAA.

PhytoTechnology Laboratories® also carried 6-Benzylaminopurine Powder, Product No. B800.
