Construction of a System for Regulated Alterations of Endogenous Cytokinins
Cytokinins are a class of phytohormones that are believed to regulate development at various times and places [6, 9, 17]. Specific aspects of development that are affected by cytokinins include shoot formation, release of axillary buds, partial floral evocation and inhibition of root elongation. However, there are some instances where cytokinins seemingly have little or no effect on these and other processes, thus producing puzzling discrepancies. These discrepancies are significant, because in order to understand how cytokinins function we need to know which processes are not effected by cytokinins as well as those that are effected.
