Abstract: This study attempts to define the role of the two major sugar constituents in the Aloe plant, mannose and glucose. We analyzed these sugars in the phosphorylated form. The significance of this study lies in the ability of the phosphorylated sugars to fit the growth factor receptors on the surface of the fibroblast.
