Cytokinin Receptor Antagonists and Compositions Containing these Derivatives

05.09.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

Cytokinins are plant hormones involved in cell division, shoot meristem and leaf formation, chloroplast biogenesis, and senescence. The development of agonists and antagonists with a particular physiological effect is useful in mechanism-of-action studies of biologically active natural products. The potent naturally occurring cytokinin N6-isopentenyladenine served as the basis for initial structure-activity studies. </p> <p><!--break--><strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer substituted 6-(alkylbenzylamino)-purin derivatives as cytokinin re-ceptor antagonists to provide cytokinin analogons for growth regulation in plants and to offer the possibility for a specific selectivity for cytokinin receptors without being toxic for animal cells. The derivatives can be used to influence morphology, leading to:</p> <ul> <li>Increased root growth, fruit or grain size</li>

<li>Stimulation of root branching and enhanced number of lateral roots</li> <li>Accelerated seed germination</li> <li>Enhanced yield and quality of crops</li> </ul> <br> <b>Benefits:</b><br><ul> <li>Non toxic for animal cells</li> <li>Efficiency is proven in various test systems</li> <li>Suitable regulator for proliferation and morphogenesis in tissue culture</li> </ul><br> </strong><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> Czech Patent Application (10/2007) <br> PCT Patent Application<br> National applications filed in USA and Europe</p> <p><strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> <ul> <li>Freie Universität Berlin</li> <li>Palacky University Olomouc (CZ)</li> </ul>

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

New success for Konstanz physicists in studying the quantum vacuum

An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...

Im Focus: How gut bacteria can make us ill

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
