10 mg in autosample vial

25, 100, 500 g in poly bottle

Application

D-(+)-Glucosamine hydrochloride has been used:
• as a standard to quantify and express chitin content as glucosamine equivalents.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is the precursor of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway leading to the formation of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc), which is then used for making glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, and glycolipids. D-(+)-Glucosamine inhibits the coaggregation of Candida yeast species with the bacterial strain S. salivarius.
