 Product Description

MGDG, or monogalactosyldiacylglycerol, is a type of lipid commonly found in plant cell membranes. It plays a crucial role in photosynthesis and membrane stability.



MGDG is utilized in research related to plant biology and lipid metabolism. It serves as a marker for studying membrane composition and function, particularly in photosynthetic organisms.
