Abstract

Root nodules ofPhaseolus mungo were extracted for their cytokinin content. Four cytokininsviz. zeatin, zeatin riboside, N6(‡2-isopentenyl) aminopurine and its riboside were identified on the basis of Rf values obtained by co-chromatography with authentic samples of cytokinins on thin layer of a mixture of polyvinylpyrrolidone/CaSO4.
