When allowed to reach equilibrium at pH 7 and 25[degrees]C, approximately 63% of the glucose will adopt the [beta]-glucopyranose conformation, with 37% existing as the [alpha]-glucopyranose, and less than 1% existing as either the aldehyde or as glucofuranose. Interconversion between the anomers may occur freely (albeit slowly) or via the catalytic activity of glucose mutarotases.
[12] reported the synthesis of various 3 -O-acyl-1,2-O-isopropylidene-D glucofuranose derivatives (1a-c) from triol 4 (Figure 1) and tested their effects in augmenting the proportion of benzidine-positive (hemoglobin-containing) cells in treated K562cell populations.
We believe that a similar hydrophobic interaction might occur between the acyl chains of glucofuranoses accumulated in the lipid like nature of the bacteria membranes.
