Description

Product Description

A weak cytokinin plant growth hormone that promotes shoot proliferation. An adenine receptor agonist that ameliorates NO production.

Application Notes

Adenine binds to thymine via two hydrogen bonds to assist in stabilizing the nucleic acid structures in DNA. In RNA, which is used for protein synthesis, adenine binds to uracil. Adenine forms adenosine, a nucleoside, when attached to ribose, and deoxyadenosine when attached to deoxyribose. It forms adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide, when three phosphate groups are added to adenosine. Adenosine triphosphate is used in cellular metabolism as one of the basic methods of transferring chemical energy between chemical reactions.
