Application Notes N-Acetyl-β-D-mannosamine hydrate is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize enzymes such as N-acetyl-glucosamine epimerase(s) and aldolase(s). N-Acetyl-D-mannosamine is used for the synthesis of of N-acetylneuraminic acid.
Biochemical Physiological Actions N-Acetyl-D-mannosamine (ManNAc) is an essential precursor of N-acetylneuraminic acid (NeuAc), the specific monomer of polysialic acid. Transport studies in the <i>E. coli</i> K1 strain have been performed to probe the effect of ManNAc on capsular polysialic acid production.
