  • In addition, a recent report indicates that mannose may affect some processes by sequestering phosphate, rather than by stimulating a hexokinase-mediated sugar-response pathway [ 66 ] . Although the mechanism by which mannose acts is uncertain at this time, the fact that it retards lipid breakdown when present at concentrations of only 1.4 mM indicates that the effects of mannose cannot be attributed to osmotic stress.

  • The osmotic swelling of the cortex in typical diabetic lenses is not matched by comparable water uptake in the nucleus; in fact, compaction occurs in similar fashion to that observed in non-diabetic lenses.

  • This effect is not due to osmotic stress, as equi-molar, or even twice equi-molar, concentrations of sorbitol have little effect on lipid breakdown.

  • [ 19 ] observed that during low non-freezing temperature in the field a greater decrease in crown osmotic potential occurred in freeze-resistant compared to more susceptible HRWW cultivars.

  • The effect of glucose on seed storage lipid breakdown is not solely due to the osmotic potential of the media, as substantially higher concentrations of sorbitol than of glucose are required to exert significant effects on lipid breakdown.
