L-(+)-Arabinose is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize pentose sugar isomerase(s). L-Arabinose is used in the bioproduction of L-ribose.
Substrate for pentose sugar isomerase | Bioproduction of L-ribose
|Alternate Names||Pectin Sugar; Pectinose|
|Application Notes||L-(+)-Arabinose is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize pentose sugar isomerase(s). L-Arabinose is used in the bioproduction of L-ribose.|
|Base Catalog Number||100706|
|Beilstein Registry Number||1723085|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||L-Arabinose is the naturally occurring isomer and is a constituent of plant polysaccharides. Most bacteria contain an inducible arabinose operon that codes for a series of enzymes and transporters that allows L-arabinose to be used as the sole carbon source in microbial culture.|
