Galactose Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry

Galactose is a kind of monosaccharide sugar, which can be got by hydrolysis of galactan. The metabolism of the galactose occurs almost entirely in the liver, and its metabolism include four major steps (Figure 1). The metabolism of the galactose provides other sugar intermediates that may be used for a wide range of metabolic processes. Therefore, galactose metabolism plays important roles in a variety of physiological and pathological conditions. It would not be surprising that galactose metabolism is important not only for fetal and neonatal development but also for adulthood1. The aberrant galactose metabolism contributes to various diseases like poor growth and feeding, jaundice and liver disease2. As a high-throughput tool, galactose 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 galactose metabolites analysis service for your various scientific purposes.
