Kinetin and N-6-Benzyladenine Influence on Cell Migration and Collagen Biosynthesis in Human Skin Fibroblasts
Agata Jabłońska-Trypuć*, Walentyn Pankiewicz, Romuald Czerpak
N-6-benzyladenine and kinetin belong to the group of plant hormones called cytokinins. Our previous work showed their positive influence on oxidative stress parameters tested in fibroblasts, therefore we decided to examine their effect on cell migration and collagen content, which wasn’t under the investigation yet. Phytohormones were added to the cultured cells for a final concentration in the range of 10-5 to 10-6M for kinetin and 10-6 to 10-7M for N6-benzyladenine.
