S024 Sodium phosphate monobasic monohydrate (NaH₂PO₄·H₂O) is commonly used in plant tissue culture primarily for its role in buffering and nutrient supply. Here are some specific uses:
1. **Buffering Agent**: It helps maintain a stable pH in the culture media, which is crucial for the optimal growth and development of plant tissues. The pH stability ensures that the biochemical processes within the plant cells proceed efficiently.
2. **Nutrient Supply**: S024 Sodium phosphate Monobasic Monohydrate provides an essential source of phosphorus, which is a vital nutrient for plant growth. Phosphorus is a key component of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), nucleic acids, and phospholipids, all of which are critical for energy transfer, genetic information, and cell membrane integrity, respectively.
3. **Metabolic Functions**: Phosphorus plays a significant role in photosynthesis, respiration, and energy transfer processes within the plant tissues. The presence of adequate phosphorus in the culture medium helps support these metabolic activities.
In summary, sodium phosphate monobasic monohydrate is used in plant tissue culture to ensure a stable pH environment and to supply necessary phosphorus for various metabolic processes, ultimately supporting healthy growth and development of plant tissues.
