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

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.

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.

Description

IBA (Indole-3-butyric acid) is a plant hormone belonging to the auxin family and assists in initiating root formation; the in vitro process is called micropropagation. Aside from accelerating root formation, it is used on various crops to stimulate flower development and the growth of fruits. This ultimately increases crop yields.

Historically, products that contained IBA were used to protect plants during transplantation by stimulating root growth and decreasing shock.

Description

FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR USE ON HUMANS.

Kinetin is a plant hormone that promotes cell division. It is part of a group of hormones called cytokinins.

The plant hormones cytokinins (CKs) comprise a class of growth regulators involved in the stress response, senescence, photosynthesis, nutrient assimilation and mobilization, as well as modulation of a plant tissue’s ability to act as a sink or source of metabolites.

CKs are recognized by a subset of sensor histidine kinases (HKs) and the signal is transmitted to the nucleus via a multistep phosphorelay (MSP), thus activating the expression of target genes.

P-165-1 1 g $ 281.00
P-165-5 5 g $ 1,059.00

Description

Phosphinothricin is a broad-spectrum herbicide that acts as a competitive inhibitor of glutamine synthetase.

Glutamine synthetase plays an important role in plant nitrogen metabolism. Its actions lead to the formation of glutamine; however, when inhibited by phosphinothricin, a rapid accumulation of ammonia along with reduction in glutamine occurs within plants.

This herbicide makes an ideal agent for the selection of transformed plants. Plant resistance to phosphinothricin is conferred through the bar gene, and due to the fast degradation of phosphinothricin in soil and in water, it presents a low risk for environmental contamination.

Zeatin Riboside is the most active and ubiquitous form of the naturally occurring cytokinins. Cytokinins promote cell division, stimulate shoot proliferation, inhibit root formation, slow the aging process, and activate gene expression and metabolic activity in general. In mature plants, natural cytokinin hormone levels are high during maximum growth periods. Concentrations of cytokinin used for horticulture vary between 0.1 to 10 mg/L.

Description

Spermine is a polyamine derived from spermidine. It is involved in the cellular metabolism of all eukaryotic cells, as well as being vital to some bacteria.

Due to its polycationic nature, nonviral gene therapy applications involving spermine have shown promising results. This has had a positive impact in cancer research involving the lungs.

Gene transfer within the lungs is met with many obstacles due to inflammatory and immunological responses. Using spermine as a gene delivery vehicle to transfect living cells has bypassed some of these obstacles, showing higher gene expression.
