Pentose and Glucuronate Interconversions Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry


Pentose and glucuronate interconversions are important carbohydrate metabolic pathway and involved in the interconversions of the monosaccharide pentose and glucuronate, the salts or esters of glucuronic acid. This pathway includes about 28 different members in human according to Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes database1. Pentose and glucuronate interconversions pathway play an important role in many biosynthetic pathways like gluconeogenesis and transamination. deamination and lipogenesis. Therefore, aberrant pentose and glucuronate interconversions are associated with various diseases like familial tumoral calcinosis2. As a high-throughput tool, pentose and glucuronate interconversions metabolites 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 pentose and glucuronate interconversions metabolites analysis service for your various scientific purposes.
