1. 3-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)-1-propanol has a certain degree of regulation of plant growth and development.
Succinic acid is a crystalline organic acid which occurs in living tissue as an intermediate in glucose metabolism.
Betaine hydrochloride is a natural compound found in many foods and also an active methyl-donor which can maintain normal DNA methylation patterns, which has anti-hypoxic, hepatoprotective, sedative, antipyretic and analgesic effects. Betaine hydrochloride can increase the secreting of thyroxine (T3) and insulin and regulate the metabolism of organism by the hormones, thus it prompts fish growth and also improves intestine figuration.
1. Cinnamamide, a non-lethal repellent, deters feeding by a wide range of avian species;cinnamamide has the potential for use against the commensal rodent Mus musculus in situations where use of lethal control methods could be hazardous (e.g. food stores).
2. Cinnamamide is an antitumor agent with low cytotoxicity acting on matrix metalloproteinase, and may serve as a lead compound in the development of antitumor drugs.
3. Cinnamamide and betaine cinnamamide have growth-regulating activity on wheat.
Gibberellins are growth-promoting phytohormones that were crucial in breeding improved semi-dwarf varieties during the green revolution. Gibberellin shows inhibitory effect on treatment on adventitious rooting, which appears to act by perturbing polar auxin transport, in particular auxin efflux in hybrid aspen, and both efflux and influx in Arabidopsis.
