inulin

 [in´u-lin]
a starch occurring in the rhizome of certain plants, which on hydrolysis yields fructose. It is used as a measure of glomerular function in tests of renal function.

in·u·lin (In),

(in'yū-lin),
A fructose polysaccharide from the rhizome of Inula helenium or elecampane (family Compositae) and other plants; administered intravenously, it is filtered by the renal glomeruli but not reabsorbed and thus can be used to determine the rate of glomerular filtration; also used in bread for diabetics. Compare: inulin clearance.
Synonym(s): alant starch, alantin, dahlin

inulin

/in·u·lin/ (in´ūl-in) a starch occurring in the rhizome of certain plants, yielding fructose on hydrolysis, and used in tests of renal function.

inulin

(ĭn′yə-lĭn)
n.
A polysaccharide with the general formula C6nH10n+2O5n+1 that yields fructose when hydrolyzed and is found in the roots of many plants, especially those of the composite family. It is used as an additive in processed foods to replace fat or sugar and to increase fiber content.

inulin

[in′yoo͡lin]
a fructose-based starch derived from rhizomes of plants from the Compositae family. It is used as a diagnostic aid in tests of kidney function, specifically glomerular filtration. It is not metabolized or absorbed by the body. It is freely filtered by the glomeruli of the kidney but is neither secreted nor reabsorbed by the tubules, making its clearance equivalent to the glomerular filteration rate.

in·u·lin

(in'yū-lin)
A fructose polysaccharide from the rhizome of Inula and other plants; used by intravenous injection to determine the rate of glomerular filtration.
Compare: inulin clearance

inulin

a complex polymer of FRUCTOSE that is soluble in water and occurs in the cell sap of storage organs such as dahlia TUBERS and dandelion TAP ROOTS.

in·u·lin

(in'yū-lin)
Fructose polysaccharide administered intravenously to determine rate of glomerular filtration.

inulin (in´yəlin´),

n a fructose-derived substance used as a diagnostic aid in tests of kidney function, specifically glomerular filtration. Inulin is not metabolized or absorbed by the body but is readily filtered through the kidney.

inulin

a starch occurring in the rhizome of certain plants, which on hydrolysis yields fructose. It is used to measure glomerular function in tests of renal function.

inulin clearance
an expression of the renal efficiency in eliminating inulin from the blood, a measure of glomerular function.
