I001 Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is a plant hormone in powder form commonly used in tissue culture for plant propagation and growth. In tissue culture, IAA serves multiple important functions, including promoting root initiation, inducing callus formation, and facilitating the regeneration of whole plants from cultured plant tissues. When added to the culture medium, IAA stimulates the formation of roots from plant explants, aiding in the development of new plantlets. It also plays a role in inducing the formation of a callus, which is a mass of undifferentiated cells commonly used as a starting material for regenerating whole plants in tissue culture.
Furthermore, I001 Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is involved in promoting the differentiation of callus into specific plant organs, such as shoots and roots, essential for the development of whole plants from tissue culture. Additionally, IAA helps regulate various aspects of plant growth and development, including cell elongation, cell division, and tropic responses, in tissue culture settings.
