Riassunto analitico
Natural plant hormones as cytokinins (CKs) are crucial signaling molecules that coordinate multiple aspects of plant growth and development (Mok, 1994). A classical approach to investigate the cytokinin function in plant development was based on analysis of their effects after their exogenous application.<br>The aim of this research was the study at physiological, biochemical and molecular level the effect of new synthesized compounds provided by Department of Pharmacy of University of Pisa (Biagi at al., 2005) and to suggest these as CKs-like molecules after the investigation of their selective activity and properties.
