Pluripotency of cytokinins, especially in the context of recently discovered properties, makes it an attractive subject for experiments concerning a molecule with multiple roles and possible applications.

As it is not only an antioxidant but also an antiaging compound that reduces wrinkles, regulates skin pigmentation, and improves overall skin appearance, kinetin has become the object of cosmetic companies' interest.

Since cytokinins induce AML cell differentiation, they could possibly also affect other kinds of cancer cells.
