D-Mannose is a carbohydrate that is important in the glycosylation of molecules in a variety of cellular processes. It is involved in N and O glycosylation of bovine why protein products, used in inf
ant formulas. It is also responsible for the O-glycosylation of the T helper cell-derived cytokine interlukin-17A, an important cell-signaling molecule.
It has been used in a study to assess the synthesis of a family of amphiphilic glycopolymers. It has also been used in a study to investigate the early detection of bronchiolitis obliterans after lung transplantation.
D-mannose is a simple sugar structurally related to glucose. It is absorbed slowly from the gastrointestinal tract, and then a large proportion of it is excreted into the urine.
D-(+)-Mannose has been used:
as a reference standard in monosaccharide analysis and quantification from sea squirts Ascidiella aspersa
as a medium component for the selection of P898012 sorgum seeds transfected with Agrobacterium
in segmented filamentous bacterium (SFB) medium supplement for culturing human cell lines
Mannose is an aldohexose carbohydrate. It is isomer of glucose with varying C2 position configuration. Majority of mannose is synthesised from its epimer glucose. It is part of the glycans present in endoplasmic reticulum (ER)/Golgi.
ChEBI: D-Mannopyranose having alpha-configuration at the anomeric centre.
Mannose is a monosaccharide.
Flammability and Explosibility
Mannose, a six-carbon carbohydrate, is the C-2 epimer of glucose and a critical sugar for protein glycosylation. Mannose can also be utilized by the brain as an alternative energy source.
D-mannose is a sugar that can be found in some fruits and vegetables, such as oranges, apples, peaches, broccoli and green beans. It has been used in the past to treat UTIs in animals. Now, there is some interest into whether it could also treat and prevent UTI in humans.
D-mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that your body utilizes to help cleanse the urinary tract and maintain a healthy bladder lining. It’s metabolized only in small amounts, with excess amounts rapidly excreted in urine, so it won’t interfere with healthy blood sugar regulation. Clinical studies have demonstrated that, when taken regularly, D-mannose promotes normal urinary tract function by cleansing and maintaining the health of the bladder lining.
Crystallise -D(+)-mannose repeatedly from EtOH, aqueous 80% EtOH, AcOH or MeOH/propan-2-ol and then dry it in vacuo over P2O5 at 60o. [For 1H NMR and equilibr
