2,3,5-Triiodobenzoic Acid is an inhibitor of polar auxin transport and generally called as TIBA. It works to regulate and control the growth of plants by suppressing formation of somatic embryo and developing postembryonic shoot / root in Eleutherococcus senticosus.
Triiodobenzoic Acid Application:
The presence of TIBA suppresses the formation of embryo from embryogenic cells without affecting the cell division and inhibits an auxin polar transport. In the medium that contains TIBA, globular embryos at several stages are transferred, while suppressing the axial and bilateral polarity development in a stage specific manner. In TIBA induced abnormal embryos, vascular differentiation and shoot and root apical meristems development are suppressed. Plantlets without shoots and roots are resultant from inhibition of TIBA in embryos.
