Fructose and Mannose Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry


Fructose is an intermediary in the metabolism of glucose1. Fructose together with glucose and galactose are the three dietary monosaccharides and can be absorbed into the bloodstream during digestion. Mannose is a C-2 epimer of glucose and belongs to the aldohexose. Mannose is rich in the form of N-linked glycosylation of proteins. Therefore, mannose plays an important in the protein glycosylation, which is the reaction in which a glycosyl donor is attached to a hydroxyl or other functional group of another molecule2. The catabolism of fructose and mannose provides critical components for sugar nucleotide biosynthesis (Figure 1). It would not be surprising that aberrant fructose and mannose metabolism lead to metabolic diseases like hypertension3. As a high-throughput tool, fructose and mannose 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 fructose and mannose related metabolites analysis service for your various scientific purposes.
