TDZ (N-phenyl-N’-1,2,3-thidiazol-5-ylurea) is a substituted phenylurea compound which was developed for mechanized harvesting of cotton bolls and has now emerged as a highly efficacious bioregulant of morphogenesis in the tissue culture of many plant species. Application of TDZ induces a diverse array of cultural responses ranging from induction of callus to formation of somatic embryos. TDZ exhibits the unique property of mimicking both auxin and cytokinin effects on growth and differentiation… CONTINUE READING
