Monosaccharides

Consuming fructose-sweetened, not glucose-sweetened, beverages increases visceral adiposity and lipids and decreases insulin...

Tagged:  

Studies in animals have documented that, compared with glucose, dietary fructose induces dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. To assess the relative effects of these dietary sugars during sustain...

Living the Sweet Life: How Does a Plant Pathogenic Fungus Acquire Sugar from Plants?

Tagged:  

The article discusses the feeding mechanism of Ustilago maydis, the plant parasitic fungus, in acquiring apoplastic sucrose from corn, the host plant. It states that a fungal plasma membrane tran...

Interaction Between Some Monosaccharides and Aspartic Acid in Dilute Aqueous Solutions

Tagged:  

Interaction between aspartic acid and d-glucose, d-galactose, and d-fructose has been studied by isothermal titration calorimetry, calorimetry of dissolution, and densimetry. It has been found th...

Conformational flexibility, pseudorotation, and exocyclic group isomerization of monosaccharides in water

Tagged:  

Acoustical absorption spectra between 10 kHz and 2 GHz are reported for various monosaccharides in water. With the exception of solutions of methyl-?-D-arabinopyranoside (0.5 mol/l) the spectra r...

Evolution of monosaccharides of honey over 3 years: influence of induced granulation

Tagged:  

Evolution of fructose and glucose over 30 months was researched in sixty fresh and unheated samples of honey collected in areas with typical Continental and Oceanic climates. Samples were stored ...
