Cytokinins ? Cytokinis ?

Think you might be looking for cytokinins - a group of plant hormones similar to auxins and gibberellins,

They are invovled in cell division and maturation
Cytokinins are derived from Adenine
They aer synthesized mainly in roots and move upward in the xylem to the leaves and fruits, where they are required for normal growth, for cell differentiation, and, in conjunction with auxin, to promote cell division.
Examples are kinetin and zeatin.

Hope this helps.
