The predominant form of auxin naturally found in plants is indole-3-acetic-acid (IAA) and the chemical characterization of the endogenous molecule has allowed the development of synthetic analogs, such as 1-naphthylacetic acid (1-NAA) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4D), commonly used in physiological and genetic studies [3, 4] and as herbicides [1].
The intact anthers after filament elimination and stems divided in 10mm-long segments were inoculated on MS medium (Murashige and Skoog, 1962) containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) 0.5mg x [1.sup.1-1] and benzyladenine (BA) 2.0mg x [1.sup.1-1] After 20 days the explants that developed calluses were transferred to a subculture medium consisting of MS mineral salts and vitamins, thidiazuron (TDZ; 0.05, 0.1, 0.5 and 1mg x [1.sup.1-1]) in combination with 2,4-D (0.1, 0.5 and 1mg x [1.sup.1-1]).

But the downside of using such chemicals is that they can poison people and pets as well as backyard wildlife: "Common insecticide ingredients such as 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), atrazine and dicamba have been shown to harm mouse embryos at times equivalent to the first week after conception in humans," says Erica Glasener of The Green Guide.
It is suggested that the exposure to chlorophenoxy herbicides, such as 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (MCPA), is responsible, but the mechanism remains unknown.
The 10 materials targeted are lead; formaldehyde; trichloroethylene; perchloroethylene; dioxins and furans; hexavalent chromium; organophosphate pesticides; polybrominated diphenyl ethers; di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, also called DEHP; and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, all of which have been linked to health concerns over environmental exposure.
