Abstract

Compounds of similar structure to kinetin (6-furyl-amino-purine) have been studied with regard to their action on animal or human cells in tissue cultures. Of the compounds, two are derivatives of biogenic amines, 6-pury1-tryptamine and 6-pury1-histamine. The first induces disturbances of mitosis of normal and malignant, animal and human cells, while the second compound is cytotoxic against tumour cells, but showed no effect on normal fibroblasts.
