Application

β-D-Allose (β-D-Allose), a rare sugar member of the aldohexose family and a C3 epimer of glucose, is used as an inhibitor of fruiting body formation and sporulation in Myxococcus xanthus.

Biochem/physiol Actions

D-Allose is a rare aldohexose sugar that has demonstrated anti-cancer, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, antihypertensive, cryoprotective, and immunosuppressant activities. D-Allose upregulates thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) gene expression and was found to induce G1 cell cycle arrest in hepatocellular carcinoma cells. It inhibited transcriptional activity of the activator protein 1, nuclear factor-κB, and nuclear factor of activated T cells. D-Allose decreases transport of 2-deoxy-D-glucose and 3-O-methyl-D-glucose in V79 Chinese hamster lung fibroblast cells.

Oxidative stress modulates the osteoclast differentiation via redox systems, and thioredoxin 1 (Trx) promotes the osteoclast formation by regulating the activity of transcription factors. The function of Trx is known to be regulated by its binding partner, thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP).

D-allose has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years due to its many pharmaceutical activities, which include anti-cancer, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, anti-hypertensive, cryoprotective, and immunosuppressant activities. D-allose has been produced from D-psicose using D-allose-producing enzymes, including L-rhamnose isomerase
