The glucosyl derivative of bartogenic acid (Glu-BA) was concomitantly measured.
After 2 h, the reaction was stopped by adding cold 7% (w/v) perchloric acid and the liberated glucose was determined as described above; glycogen concentration was expressed as glucosyl units ([micro]mol [g.sup.-1] dry tissue) after subtracting the quantity of glucose in the sample prior to enzymatic digestion.
Two Domains on SPS: Recently, researchers have made it clear that SPS had two domains (Chua et al., 2008), glucosyltransferase domain (N-domain), which was related to glucosyl transference and SPP-like domain (C- domain) that perhaps bound SPP to form SPS-SPP complexity.
In lysosomal degradation, catabolism of GSLs occurs by cleavage of sugar residues which leads to the formation of glucosyl ceramide and galactosylceramide.
His research activities include studies on the reaction mechanisms of various alpha-amylases and glucosyl transferases.
Glucosyl transferase inhibitors from plant extracts for dentifrice.
As previously published, muscle glycogen stores were not statistically different at the start of the time trial on the LFAT and MFAT time trial and averaged 360 [+ or -] 43 and 293 [+ or -] 25mmol glucosyl units*[kg.sup.-1] dry mass, respectively (Larson-Meyer et al., 2008).
Like plant cellulose, bacterial cellulose is highly crystalline, but the two celluloses differ in the arrangement of glucosyl units within the unit cells of the crystallites, and genetic evidence suggests that the two celluloses are synthesized by enzymatic machinery that differs considerably at the molecular level [3].
Total carbohydrates were quantified as glucosyl units, using a calibration curve of glucose treated in the same way as particular samples, especially for the incubation times.
This data supports a one-chain triclinic unit cell structure (P1 space group) with glucosyl linkages and hydroxymethyl groups in the gauchetrans (gt) and trans-gauche (tg) conformations with dihedral angles of 180[degrees] and -60[degrees], respectively [50].
Torres's group reported the synthesis of a series of [alpha]-glucosyl derivatives of resveratrol by a trans-glycosylation reaction catalyzed by the enzyme cyclodextrin glucanotransferase (CGTase) using starch as glucosyl donor [20].
