Product Description

Most plants are incapable of surviving on a synthetic medium containing mannose as energy source, because these plants miss the enzyme Phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).This leads to an accumulation of mannose phosphate which depletes intracellular stores of inorganic phosphate. In the presence of PMI, mannose 6-phosphate is converted into fructose 6-phosphate to enter the glycolytic pathway. A new selection system has been developed by genetically transforming plant cells with the gene ManA, coding for PMI, as marker. Cells containing this gene are able to grow on mannose. Should be stored at room temperature, and it soluble in water.
