Amino Sugar and Nucleotide Sugar Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry


Amino sugars are chemical compounds that have a sugar backbone, in which one of the hydroxyl groups is replaced by an amine group. Glucosamine, galactosamine and neuraminic acid are three major types of amino sugars. In contrast, nucleotide sugars are the activated forms of monosaccharides. Nucleotide sugars act as glycosyl donors in glycosylation reactions via glycosyltransferases. Both amino sugars and nucleotide sugars play important roles in regulating protein function. It would not be surprising that aberrant amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism links to various diseases like galactosemia and distal myopathy. As a high-throughput tool, amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism analysis provides a powerful way to diagnosis and gain new insights in disease mechanism or treatment. With integrated array of separation, characterization, identification and quantification experience, Creative Proteomics provides reliable, rapid and cost-effective amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism analysis service for your various scientific purposes.
