the mannitol concentration

Post by Dong » Wed May 05, 2010 12:12 pm

Is there anyone could tell the contration of mannitol that equal to 20mM K2SO4 added to the agar plate ?

and the fomula ion stress equal to the mannitol concentration ?


thanks for help !

how can you compare manitol and potassium sulphate? One form three ions, whereas the other is neutral and could serve as carbon source

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

the use of mannitol is just intended to check wether the effect of ions addition is caused by the increased water pressure ?
So, I want to know
the phenomen (addition 20mM K2SO4 cause plant grows poor) is because of water pressure enhanced ?
But the problem is the concentration that equals to 20mM K2SO4 .

20mM K2SO4 = ? mannitol

Thanks !

some friends told me ,
in solution, 20mM K2SO4 = 40 or 60 mM Mannitol
but they can not offer the souce !

I don't know whether that is right .

anyone could tell me ?

Thanks

Look to Vyroubalová et al. 2009; we have used PEG, but in Materials and Methods is reference to article, from which we took the concentration, there may be also mannitol.

However, as I said, mannitol will influence the plant growth by itself, so if you want to see only the effect of osmotic pressure, you should use something inactive.
