MP-5 MEDIUM

Product Code TM 2212

  • Description

    Pectin is an important cell wall component of higher plants that helps in cementing plant cells together. Most pectin-degrading organisms are associated with raw agricultural products and with soil. Detection of pectinolytic activity of an organism is carried out either by observing depression in the gel around the colony where the substrate has been degraded or by flooding the plate with a precipitant solution. MP-5 Medium is used for the detection of pectinolytic organisms especially those producing polygalactouronase. MP-5 medium is recommended by APHA for detecting pectinolytic organisms.
