Dictionary » G » Galactose



(Science: biochemistry) hexose identical to glucose except that orientation of H and OH on carbon 4 are exchanged.

a component of cerebrosides and gangliosides, glycoproteins. Lactose, the disaccharide of milk, consists of galactose joined to glucose by a _(1-4) glycosidic link. A simple Sugar found in lactose.A monosaccharide that does not occur naturally, though produces lactose when combined with [[glucose.

Secondary Sugars(metabolism/sugar/bacteria/Lac Operon)

... final tomorrow and we are focusing a lot on the lac operon series and some of the metabolic processes of sugars. I know that bacteria cells prefer galactose, but will still use lactose, so does that mean lactose is a secondary sugar? Also does that make allolactose(lac operon inducer) a secondary ...

mRNA transcripts, cis/trans-acting questions

... these two homework questions. I have no idea where/how to start to figure these out. You have isolated several yeast mutants unable to metabolize galactose. All of the mutants fail to transcribe the GAL2 gene, which encodes the enzyme for the first step in metabolizing galactose. For mutants a. ...

I need some help...

... as to how to make a 100 mg/mL solution. I also do not know how to accurately record the enzymes activity other than by looking at the glucose and galactose concentration in a given period of time (in this case, 5 minutes); now the problem lies in what are some precise ways to measure the glucose ...
