No answer description available for this question.

Tahir said: (Jun 11, 2011)  
Then what do gibberellins do. ?

Dr.Paramesha.M said: (Jul 15, 2011)  
Auxins also play very important role in cell division it is essential for root development and may gibberellins helps in elongation of cells.

Shantanu said: (Nov 2, 2011)  
Then Auxin can also be the answer?

Mirry said: (Mar 21, 2012)  
Exactly I thought the answer was Auxin!

Kunjabihari said: (Jan 9, 2013)  
The alternative chemical name of auxin is Indal Acetic Acid(IAA)and the ans is auxin.

John said: (Jul 16, 2013)  
Kinins doesn't play any role in plant division. The answer is auxin.

Moukoko said: (Oct 2, 2013)  
For sure auxins do play a role in plant cell divisions but most specifically in cell growth. While cytokinins promotes cellular division.

Rahul said: (Mar 3, 2014)  
Auxin is a hormone released by plants for their growth.

Anuj said: (Apr 9, 2014)  
Why not auxins and gibberellins?

Pupun said: (Apr 30, 2014)  
Auxin plays an important rule in cell division.

Dhruvil said: (Jun 23, 2014)  
Auxin is responsible for plant growth and serves as plant growth regulating hormone by accelerating cell division.

Atanu said: (Jul 3, 2014)  
Cytokinins help in cell division and development in the presence of Auxins.

Rozaria said: (Jul 19, 2014)  
What role do kinins play?

Ram said: (Dec 20, 2014)  
Auxin is not a another name of Indole Acetic acid. It is the one of the type of auxin.

Owabumuwa Felicia said: (Jul 11, 2015)  
Auxins have a cardinal role in coordination of many growth and behavioral processes in the.

Plant's life cycle and are essential for plant body development. Auxins and their role in.

Plant growth were first described by the Dutch scientist. I know auxin to be important in growth of plant. Kinin - any of a class of plant hormones that promote cell division and delay the senescence of leaves. They are 110%correct.

Dipti said: (Jul 13, 2015)  
Auxin is primary involve in cell division than kinins.

Alexander said: (Aug 15, 2015)  
So which answer is 100% correct.

Suvidha said: (Aug 28, 2015)  
The plant hormone auxin controls cell elongation. Cytokinin promotes cell division, controlling many developmental processes in plants.

Gibberellins control many aspects of plant physiology including shoot elongation, seed germination, fruit and flower maturation, seed dormancy, gender expression, seedless fruit development, etc.

Rajib Kumar Giri said: (Oct 10, 2015)  
Kinins is not a satisfied answer. Actually Kinins, including bradykinin and kallidin, are peptides that are produced and act at the site of tissue injury or inflammation.

They induce a variety of effects via the activation of specific B1 or B2 receptors that are coupled to a number of biochemical transaction mechanisms. So auxin is the hormone which helps division of cell.

Rav said: (Nov 6, 2015)  
Cytokinin: Any of a class of plant hormones involved in cell growth and division.

Auxin: A class of plant growth hormones that is responsible for elongation in phototropism and gravitropism and for other growth processes in the plant life cycle.

Gibberellin: Any of a class of diterpene plant growth hormones that stimulate shoot elongation, seed germination, and fruit and flower maturation.

Ratna said: (Mar 30, 2016)  
Auxin's partner in crime is a class of hormones called Cytokinins. Cytokinins promote cell division (cytokinesis) and are produced in roots, embryos and fruits, or wherever there is actively growing tissue. However, cytokinins need auxin to induce cell division.

Rhythm said: (Aug 18, 2016)  
Kinins is also a plant hormone that induces cell division.

Chukwuka Francisca said: (Sep 24, 2017)  
Auxin helps in cell enlargement while cytokinin helps in cell division. Therefore the answer is correct.

Shakir said: (Jan 20, 2019)  
I think auxin is the right answer.

Tani said: (Apr 3, 2019)  
They act locally to induce Vesodilation and contraction of muscles. Kinin functions as mediator for inflammatory responses by triggering the immune system. In botany, the plant hormones called cytokinins were first called kinins.

Kulsoom said: (Nov 15, 2019)  
I think Auxins is suitable answer for this question.
