General description

Galactose is a constituent of lactose. It is one of the main nutrients for newborn infants and young children. It is produced in the body for the formation of lactose and is also a component of glycolipids (cerebrosides) and glycoproteins.

Application

D-(+)-Galactose has been used in cell line and culture medium to permits the cell growth arrest without altering the specific production rate of rh-tPA (qtPA).
