Is there a possibility that the enzymes are specialized only for utilizing α-D-glucose and not its epimers like mannose,etc.? Is the reason for us being composed of L-amino acids similar to the reason for α-D-glucose to form glycogen and not cellulose (ie because of it's ability ...

Biological Functions of...

... many sugars for signaling purposes: either glycoproteins or proteoglycans. For example: Secretory vesicles in the Golgi cisterna use mostly mannose, galactose, and NAG (N-Acetlyglucosamine) to make the necessary glycoproteins for export. Oh, and all those glycoproteins and glucosamines in ...
