Descriptive Study of Oses’biological interest and their derivatives


1) D-Glucopyranose :

  • Se glucose naturel (D (+) glucose) is widespread in nature. This is the main fuel of the body and the universal fuel of the fetus.
  • the polymerization of glucose leads to glycogen (foie, muscles).
  • glucose is the glucose concentration in the free state in the blood (0.80g/l )
  • glucose is reducing, glucose oxidase oxide in aldonic acid

Glucose oxydase
Glucose ————————–► gluconic acid + H20

  • its optical rotation is dextrorotatory.

2) D-Galactopyranose :

  • It is involved in the composition of :

– lactose = D Gal + D Glu cérébrogalactosides brain.

-glycoproteins and glycolipids some.

  • Its optical rotation is dextrorotatory.

3) D-Mannopyranose :

  • it is present mainly in plant.
  • It is a constituent of glycoproteins in humans.
  • Its optical rotation is dextrorotatory.

4) D-Fructofuranose :

  • It is found mostly in his name where fruit.
  • Its optical rotation is levorotatory hence his name of levulose.
  • It is present in seminal fluid in humans or participates in the movement of sperm.
  • It is present in form furan sucrose.
  • the cyclisation is between C2(ketone)and C5 .

NB : position of the substituents on the C2 :

  1. first placed oh hemiacetal which gives the configuration or ,
  2. The in CH20H 1 takes the vacant position.

5) D-Ribofuranose :

  • the furan form is the usual form of combined pentoses in nucleic acids (ARN).
  • D ribofuranose is related to the purine and pyrimidine bases through an N-glycosidic bond (nucleosides, nucleotides).
  • He intervenes in the structure of coenzyme : OVER,NADP,ATP .

*The organic form is the form furan(1-4)

In deoxyribose the OH 2 is replaced with H (ADN)


6) Amine derivatives of organic oses :

  • Two amino sugars have biological interest : glucosamine (-OH, and 2 replaced by -NH2)
  • The NH2-acetylated is often to give a N-acetylglucosamine or N-acetylgalactosamine
  • The amino sugars are components of glycolipids, glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins.
Beta-D-Glucosamine / Beta-D-N-Acetyl-Galactosamine

7) Acid derivatives d’biological dares :

a- aldonic acids :

by oxidation are obtained from the hemiacetal function of aldoses by halogen(ketoses do not react)

b- uronic acids :

– are obtained by oxidation of the primary alcohol function to the C6

  • These are glycosaminoglycans constituents
  • Their biological role is essential in liver detoxification

c- = Sialic acid N-acetyl neuraminic acid(NANA) :

* The neuraminic acid is the condensation product of :

pyruvic acid + D-mannosamine.

  • These are components of glycoproteins and glycolipids of eukaryotic cells wall.

  1. Hello, I’m quite relieved I’ve noticed this info.
    In these modern times writers put up no more gossip and additionally total and this is actually frustrating.
    An excellent blog site with the help of exciting material, that’s things
    i have to have. Thank you for holding this amazing site,
    I’ll possibly be going to the item. Is the next step
    news letters? Won’t be able to think it.
