Description

2-Deoxy-D-ribose is a reducing sugar that is incorporated into deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). It is a degradation product of thymidine generated by thymidine phosphorylase. 2-Deoxy-D-ribose inhibits apoptosis induced by hypoxia by suppressing hypoxia-inducible factor 1a. It also promotes angiogenesis and the chemotactic activity of endothelial cells. Thus, inhibition of 2-Deoxy-D-ribose is being explored in anti-cancer treatments. 2-Deoxy-D-ribose also induces apoptosis in human fibroblasts by depleting intracellular levels of reduced glutathione and causing oxidative stress while disturbing the cytoskeletal structure.

Description

2-keto-D-gluconic acid is found in the carrageenan polysaccharide of Irish moss and can be used as a stabilizer in the storage of biological materials. 2-keto-D-gluconic acid exhibits antimicrobial properties against species of Pseudomonas that cause plant disease. Genes for metabolism of 2-keto-d-gluconic acid are controlled by the UxuR regulon in E. coli. 2-keto-D-gluconic acid is converted to D-mannonate by the enzyme fructuronate reductase (EC 1.1.1.57). 2-keto-D-gluconic acid hemicalcium salt can be used to make D-erythorbic acid using an α-amylase enzyme. It can also be used to prepare D-ribulose and D-arabinose by heating in pyridine with a nickel acetate catalyst.

Description

Adenine is sparingly soluble (1 mg/ml) purine nucleobase involved in a wide variety of cellular processes and comprises one of the five nitrogenous bases involved in nucleic acid synthesis. In addition, adenine serves as the purine base in adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a major unit of energy involved in cellular metabolism. Adenine also plays a role in cellular metabolism as a component to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD).

Because of the extensive role adenine plays in cells, it is commonly used as a cell culture additive.

Adenosine-5′-monophosphate (AMP) plays an important role in cellular metabolic processes as it is a precursor to adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP).

The phosphate in AMP can be correlated with ATP and ADP. AMP contains only one phosphate group attached at the 5’ position, whereas ATP consists of three phosphate groups attached in series to the 5’carbon location, and ADP contains two phosphate groups attached to the 5’ position. AMP can also have an activating effect on a class of protein kinases known as AMP-activated protein kinases, or AMPKs.

Description

Adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) is an important molecule in vivo for energy storage and metabolism and is often called the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. ATP is a coenzyme in multiple reactions as well as a substrate for multiple kinases where it helps to propagate a signal either inside or outside of the cell.

The three phosphates in ATP can be correlated with ADP and AMP. ATP consists of three phosphate groups attached in series to the 5’carbon location, whereas ADP contains two phosphate groups attached to the 5’ position, and AMP contains only one phosphate group attached at the 5’ position.

Adonitol, also known as ribitol, is the reduced alcohol form of ribose. Adonitol is found in plants of the genus Adonis, from which the molecule takes its name. It is a component of teichoic acids found in the cell walls of Gram positive bacteria. Adonitol is also a moiety present in riboflavin (vitamin B2). Adonitol is commonly used in media for cryopreservation and lyophilization of cells. It is metabolized by some microbes, but not others so an adonitol fermentation test can be used to help identify an unknown microbial organism.

Chenodeoxycholic acid is one of the primary bile acids produced by humans. Bile acids or bile salts are intestinal, natural detergents; their main function is to solubilize lipids in the digestive processes. The major action of a bile salt, such as chenodeoxycholic acid, is to form micelles in order to emulsify fats and oils. Chenodeoxycholic acid also acts as a hormone-like ligand for the nuclear farnesoid X receptor which regulates transcription of many genes. Bile acids are used in bacteriological culture media as a selective inhibitory agent. Most aerobic enteric bacteria are resistant to the inhibitory effects of chenodeoxycholic acid.

D-Arabinose is a five-carbon reducing sugar. It is a constituent of arabinogalactans that make up the cell wall of mycobacteria. It is also a substrate for D-erythroascorbic acid biosynthesis in yeast. D-arabinose is converted to D-ribulose by an arabinose isomerase enzyme, which can then be phosphorylated and enter the pentose phosphate pathway. As opposed to most other sugars, D-arabinose, featured here, is actually less commonly found in nature than L-arabinose.
