General description

Type M agar is predominantly used in plant tissue culture. It is similar to agar, a polysaccharide complex with a backbone of alternating agarose and agaropectin molecules and extracted from red algae.


Type M agar has been used as a component of Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium for culturing Arabidopsis thalania seeds. It has also been used in rooting media for tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) seeds.

Measuring the mobility and interactions of proteins is key to understanding cellular signaling mechanisms; however, quantitative analysis of protein dynamics in living plant cells remains a major challenge. Here we describe an automated, single-molecule protocol based on total internal reflection...

Water is arguably the most important constituent of microbial microhabitats due to its control of physical and physiological processes critical to microbial activity. In natural environments, bacteria often live on unsaturated surfaces, in thin (micrometric) liquid films. Nevertheless, no experimental...
