Insights into Cytokinin Functions: Characterizing Arabidopsis thaliana Mutants
City:Mississauga, ON
School:St. Marcellinus
Abstract:Arabidopsis thaliana provides us with the means to identify variations that affect plant growth. Cytokinins are key regulators and much remains to be learned about how these hormone signals are transmitted at the molecular level. Here we exposed different lines of Arabidopsis to varying concentrations of the cytokinin N6-benzylamino-purine. Root responses of these plants could give us insights into potential uses of cytokinins in agriculture.
