Starch and Sucrose Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry


Starch is a polymeric carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose units connected by glycosidic bonds. Similarly, sucrose is a kind of carbohydrate and composed of two monosaccharides: glucose and fructose. Basically, the starch and sucrose metabolism begin with D-fructose that interacts with a D-glucose in a reversible reaction through a maltodextrin glucosidase. By multiple procedures, the metabolism of starch and sucrose produce several important intermediates like glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate, which interact with other metabolic pathways including glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. It would not be surprising that the aberrant starch and sucrose metabolism is closely associated with several human diseases including familial tumoral calcinosis and trehalase deficiency. The metabolism of starch and sucrose 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 the starch and sucrose metabolism analysis service for your various scientific purposes.
