Description

Recommended products
Propylbenzene

Application
D-(-)-Arabinose is used in culture media for some bacteria. It serves as a component of biopolymers such as hemicellulose and pectin. In the synthetic biology laboratory, it is employed as a reversible switch for protein expression under the Pbad promoter (i.e. part of plasmids) in E. coli. Further, it acts as an inhibitor of the enzyme glucose dehydrogenase. In addition to this, it is used as a pharmaceutical intermediate and food additive.

Purpose
for R&D use only, not for drug,household or other usage

General Description
Arabinose is an aldopentose – a monosaccharide containing five carbon atoms, and including an aldehyde (CHO) functional group. For biosynthetic reasons, most saccharides are almost always more abundant in nature as the "D"-form, or structurally analogous to D-glyceraldehyde.However, L-arabinose is in fact more common than D-arabinose in nature and is found in nature as a component of biopolymers such as hemicellulose and pectin.
