However, if a small amount of L-Arabinose is added to sucrose, the breakdown of sucrose is inhibited and rapid elevation of blood glucose is suppressed (20,21).
The research has found that L-arabinose demonstrates a potential to inhibit obesity and type 2 diabetes.
As shown in Figure 4(a), four monosaccharides, including L-Arabinose, D-Mannose, D-Glucose, and D-Galactose, were identified according to the elution time of relative monosaccharide standards.
Strains in group A did not produce acids from L-arabinose and ribose, while strains in other cocci groups did.
Great differences were observed in the utilization of L-arabinose, urocanic acid, [alpha]-glycerol-phosphate, glucose-1-phosphate, and glucose-6-phosphate which were positive for 14%, 18%, 50%, 47%, and 33% of the strains, respectively, instead of not being preferred as a sole carbon source.
Recombinant proteins are induced by adding L-Arabinose to the medium.
has launched Prenulin, a patent-pending combination of a specific form of L-arabinose combined with chromium.
The strain reduced nitrate to nitrite, produced N-acetyl-[beta]-glucosamidase, phosphatase, [alpha]- and [beta]-galactosidases, [alpha]- and [alpha]-glucosidases, and assimilated L-arabinose, L-fucose, D-glucose, maltose, D-mannose, D-melibiose, L-rhamnose, sucrose, and salicin with Api 20NE, Api ID32GN (bioMerieux), and ID-GNB biochemical galleries.
In addition, L-arabinose has been shown to inhibit sucrase.
