General description

Glucose/dextrose is a carbohydrate compound or an aldohexose, present in humans. It is used as fuel by cells. Glucose consists of six carbon atoms and an aldehyde group. This monosaccharide can exist in an open-chain (acyclic) and ring (cyclic) form. It plays an important role in animal metabolism. Glucose, a major product of photosynthesis, participates in cellular respiration to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).


D-(+)-Glucose has been used:
  • as a component of Tris-glucose-EDTA (TGE) buffer for the preparation of bacterial DNA
  • in the preparation of peptide dilution buffer (PDB)
  • in the preparation of M17 broth medium
  • in the preparation of phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) buffer, used in phosphate calcium transfection

  1. How does the storage temperature relate to shipping conditions?

    The storage conditions that a Sigma-Aldrich catalog and label recommend for products are deliberately conservative. For many products, long-term storage at low temperatures will increase the time during which they are expected to remain in specification and therefore are labeled accordingly. Where short-term storage, shipping time frame, or exposure to conditions other than those recommended for long-term storage will not affect product quality, Sigma-Aldrich will ship at ambient temperature. The products sensitive to short-term exposure to conditions other than their recommended long-term storage are shipped on wet or dry ice. Ambient temperature shipping helps to control shipping costs for our customers. At any time, our customers can request wet- or dry-ice shipment, but the special handling is at customer expense if our product history indicates that the product is stable for regular shipment. See Shipping and Storage for more information.

  2. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  3. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  4. How do I find price and availability?

    There are several ways to find pricing and availability for our products. Once you log onto our website, you will find the price and availability displayed on the product detail page.

Insulin Signaling and Energy Homeostasis

Glucose metabolism is regulated by the opposing actions of insulin and glucagon. Insulin is released from pancreatic ß cells in response to high blood glucose levels and regulates glucose metabolism through its actions on muscle, liver, and adipose tissue.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
