Polyol dehydrogenases (PDHs) play a pivotal role in the biotransformation between rare sugar and alcohol. Among these PDHs, mannitol 2-dehydrogenase (MDH, EC 220.127.116.11), galactitol 2-dehydrogenase (GDH, EC 18.104.22.168), ribitol 2-dehydrogenase (RDH, EC 22.214.171.124), xylitol 4-dehydrogenase (XDH, EC 126.96.36.199), and arabitol...

Furfural was prepared in high yields (75 %) from the reaction of xylose in a water-tetrahydrofuran biphasic medium containing AlCl(3)·6H2O and NaCl under microwave heating at 140 °C. The reaction profile revealed the formation of xylulose as an intermediate en...

Dicarbonyl/L-xylulose reductase (DCXR) converts l-xylulose into xylitol, and reduces various α-dicarbonyl compounds, thus performing a dual role in carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification. In this study, we identified DHS-21 as the only DCXR ortholog in Caenorhabditis elegans. The dhs-21 gene is...
