Description

Dextrose monohydrate is a common natural sugar with key roles in energy-producing cellular processes as well as glycosylation and the formation of glycans that give cells their structure. Dextrose monohydrate modifies proteins post-translation via glycation or non-enzymatic glycosylation at lysine residues. Glycation has been identified as a detrimental process in cells and leads to problems associated with diabetes, Alzheimer’s, ageing, and cataracts.

 

Applications

• Test compound for studying dehydration kinetics using THz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS)
• In food and pharmaceutical industries, used to indicate degree of water content in substances

USE
D-(+)-Glucose (monohydrate) is a common natural sugar involved in processes such as energy production, glycosylation, and formation of glycans that provide structure to cells. Glucose is involved in a detrimental process in cells called glycation. Glucose is used as a supplement for cell culture and in numerous cellular processes.
