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

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-165-5 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.

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.
