Myo-Inositol is an important metabolite for normal growth and development of all living organisms. The cellular level of myo-inositol is controlled by the enzyme L-myo- inositol-1-phosphate synthase (MIPS) [EC]. Appreciable level of MIPS activity was detected from the common pteridophytes like Dicranopteris, Diplazium, Diplopterygium, Equisetum, Lycopodium, Polypodium, Pteridium, Selaginella etc. available in Darjeeling Himalayas. The enzyme was partially purified from the reproductive… CONTINUE READING
