Allantoin is a metabolic intermediate of purine catabolism in plants widely used in the cosmetic industry as a moisturiser and aid to topical wound healing. Pharmacologically, allantoin has been demonstrated to activate imidazoline-3 (I3) receptors located in pancreatic tissues and ameliorate B-cell damage induced by streptozotocin. In Arabidopsis, allantoin activates abscisic acid (ABA) production, thereby stimulating stress-related gene expression and enhancing seedling tolerance to abiotic stress.
