Cytokinin Differences in In Vitro Cultures and Inflorescences from Normal and Mantled Oil Palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.)


The mantled abnormality phenotype of the oil palm affects fruit development and thus jeopardizes oil yield. Cytokinins have been implicated in the development of the mantled phenotype. Endogenous cytokinin levels in the normal and mantled phenotypes were compared to determine whether levels of specific cytokinins are associated with mantling. Endogenous… (More)
