Plant Research
Plant research and the study of how plant cells grow and function is an important field of study! Plant cell growth regulators, or phytohormones, affect the growth and differentiation of tissues, organs and plant cells. GoldBio carries regulators such as gibberellic acid, auxins (i.e. IAA or abscisic acid), and zeatin. GoldBio also carries bialaphos, a selective agent utilizing the pat and bar genes for transformation experiments. We also proudly carry Duchefa brand agars, the world leader in plant research reagents. Duchefa agar and agar substitutes are designed to be free of contaminants that would impede plant cell growth, ensuring a clean medium for your experiments. Our products deliver a stable and affordable way to grow and experiment with your plant cultures.

Description
28-homo-brassinolide is a plant hormone from a class of polyhydroxysteroids that has been shown to have a protective role in plants under various stress situations; showing significant improvement of plant growth, water uptake, photosynthesis and yield. 28-homo-brassinolide has been shown to be the most effective of any of the brassinosteroids in mitigating plant stress effects from natural conditions such as chilling, drought, heat or salinity. Brassinosteriods are a group of plant hormones that occur naturally in the plant kingdom. They have a variety of physiological roles including cell division and elongation, gene regulation, photosynthesis, senescence, enzyme activation and growth.Product Specifications28-homo-brassinolide22(S),23(S)-HomobrassinolideIsohomobrassinolideFormula C29H50O6 View product page →

4-CPPU is a cytokinin class plant growth regulator that is used to promote plant cell division. This compound has been used to increase embryogenic potential by inducing somatic embryogenesis, assist in plant callus production and investigate effects on plant biomass growth. 4-CPPU has also been shown to stimulate organogenesis in some plant species, such as Rubus.4-CPPU increases plant growth by inhibiting cytokine oxidase, a regulator of cytokinin activity. The exact type of inhibition has not yet been elucidated. Researchers have found 4-CPPU to function as a competitive inhibitor, while others have found it to behave as a noncompetitive inhibitor.Product Specifications4-CPPUForchlorfenuronN-(2-chloro-4-pyridyl)-N’-phenylureaFormula: View product page →

Description

Abscisic Acid is a naturally occuring plant hormone involved in plant growth and stress response. It is produced partially via the mevalonic pathway in chloroplasts and other plastids. The production of ABA is accentuated by stress, including water loss or freezing temperatures. The activation of ABA can occur by one of two methods: 1) an ABA-glucose ester can form by attachment of glucose to ABA, or 2) the oxidation of ABA can occur to form phaseic acid and dihyhdrophaseic acid.

The transport of ABA can occur in both xylem and phloem tissues, and it can also be translocated through paranchyma cells. Some functions of ABA include stimulating the closure of stomata, Inhibition of shoot growth, induction of seeds to synthesize storage proteins, inhibition of the effect of gibberellins and the induction of gene transcription in response to wounding (especially for proteinase inhibitors).

Description

Bialaphos is a tripeptide antibiotic that is used in transformation experiments of many species of plants that make use of the bar gene for selection. In corn, it is more effective than glufosinate. In wheat, bialaphos was the most reliable selection criteria used to identify bar transformed plants.

Once introduced into a nonresistant plant cell, bialaphos is hydrolyzed and converted to phosphinothricin through the phosphinothricin acetyl transferase enzyme. Phosphinothricin is toxic within plants, causing ammonia to build up, which inhibits glutamine synthetase.

This broad-spectrum herbicide also has effectiveness against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as certain fungal plant pathogens.

Description
Bromoxynil is an organic compound that functions as a nitrile herbicide. It functions as potent herbicide of broad-leaf weeds by disrupting photosystem II of light dependent reactions in plants. Bromoxynil attaches to plastoquinone binding site QB, preventing electron transport and promoting oxygen radical formation within photosystem II.Bromoxynil has been used in agricultural research to observe the effects of herbicides on soil microbes. Results of these studies have shown applying bromoxynil in moderate concentrations promotes increased herbicide degradation by bacteria, reducing herbicide functionality. However, when bromoxynil was applied in greater concentrations soil microbe proliferation significantly decreased.Product SpecificationsBromoxynil3, 5-Dibromo-4-hydroxybenzonitrileFormula: C7H3Br2NO MW: 276.91 View product page →

Description
Chlorimuron ethyl is a sulfonylurea organic compound used as an insulin enhancing compound and also for herbicide. Promotion of insulin release by chlorimuron ethyl occurs by inhibiting ATP-sensitive potassium channels, which depolarizes the cell membrane of β-islet pancreatic cells. Depolarization is followed by a large influx of calcium that signals the cell to exocytose insulin vesicles.Chlorimuron ethyl has also been used to induce plant death by inhibiting acetolactate synthase (ALS). The enzyme ALS synthesized branched chain amino acids, such as valine and leucine, which are integral to forming key enzymes in photosynthesis and aerobic respiration.

Dichlorophen is an organochlorine compound that has been used as an antiparastic, antibacterial, antifungal and herbicide. While it has a variety of uses, the mechanism of action is not well understood. Dichlorophen could be a respiration uncoupler by functioning as a competitive inhibitor of malate dehydrogenase. Other findings suggest dichlorophen to act as a potassium antiporter and disturb normal membrane potential.Dichlorophen, when used in plants, has displayed mitosis disrupting mechanisms, preventing cell proliferation. The compound was found to damage DNA which was concluded from observing chromosome bridge formation during mitosis. This structure indicates sticky DNA fragments which impede chromosomal migration View product page →

IAA (Indole-3-Acetic Acid) is the abundant and well known plant hormone of the auxin class.IAA is predominantly produced in the apical bud of and young leaves of plants and is known to be an inducer of cell division and elongation.IAA, as well as most other auxins, are also known to act in concert with, or in opposition to, other plant hormones. For example, the ratio of auxin to cytokinin in certain plant tissues determines initiation of root versus shoot buds.
