hexose sugar

hexose sugar

a sugar containing six carbon atoms (e.g. glucose, C6H12 O6). Hexose sugars are the basic building blocks for more complex CARBOHYDRATES.

Homofermentative lactic acid bacteria metabolize hexose sugar entirely by Embden-Meyerhof pathway [4].
Mannitol, an hexose sugar alcohol, also increased in all studied genotypes with the reduction of temperature (Table 2), with Catucai showing the highest percentage and absolute values changes at 13/8[degrees]C and 3x13/4[degrees]C.
Two moles of formaldehyde are formed from hexose sugar. The amount of formaldehyde produced was quantified as the fluorescent adduct formed by condensation of formaldehyde with acetyl acetone and ammonia.
In contrast, adjustment for plasma glucose considerably weakened the metabolite-disease associations for molecules annotated as "tetrahydroxyhexanoic acid and/or hexose sugar (e.g., glucose, fructose, inositol), " isopentenyladenosine-5; -monophosphate, and hydroxymethylbutenyl diphosphate.
Nectar sugars used by bees are the hexose sugars fructose and glucose, and the disaccharide sucrose, which is comprised of glucose and fructose.
An idial organism has capability of consuming both pentoses and hexose sugars, high tolerance against substrate; ethanol as well as inhibiting compound, high ethanol yield and minimum nutrient requirement is the essential features of an ideal microorganism (Van Zyl et al., 2007).
Studies of the Toxoplasma gondii sugar transporter, TgGTl, revealed its ability to transport several hexose sugars (glucose, mannose, fructose, and galactose) [13].
CIS occurs due to the imbalance among the rate of starch breakdown and the metabolism of resulting sucrose, a few of which enters in the vacuole where it can be irreversibly cleaved by acid invertase enzyme to the hexose sugars i.e.

Biological, enzymatic, or microbial hydrolysis commonly involves four biologically-mediated transformations: the production of saccharolytic enzymes (cellulases and hemicellulases); the hydrolysis of carbohydrate components present in pretreated biomass to sugars; the fermentation of hexose sugars (glucose mannose, and galactose); and the fermentation of pentose sugars, xylose and arabinose [3, 4].
