Digalacturonic acid (DGA), derived in vivo from pectin catabolism, is used for the co-crystallization of enzymes such as proteinase K. It is used in galacturonic acid metabolism research as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterized endo- and exopolygalacturonase(s) and gluconase(s). DGA is used to study the transport of oligogalacturonides by systems such as the TogMNAB ABC transporter.

D-galacturonic acid is the most abundant component of pectin, one of the major polysaccharide constituents of plant cell walls. Galacturonic acid potentially is an important carbon source for microorganisms living on (decaying) plant material. A catabolic pathway was proposed in

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, an endopolygalacturonase encoded by the PGL1 gene catalyzes the random hydrolysis of the α-1,4 glycosidic linkages in polygalacturonic acid. To study the regulation of the PGL1 gene, we constructed a reporter vector containing the lacZ gene under
