Acidic invertase is a key enzyme in phloem unloading and maintainance of hexoses supply to meristems (STURM; TANG, 1999), while neutral invertase controls internal hexose levels into the cell of mature tissues, where the susy activity is low (VAN DEN ENDE; VAN LAERE, 1995).
Cellulase can degrade cellulose fiber to monosaccharides, such as hexose and pentose.
There are two main mechanisms of HMF production during the burning of the wood, either the dehydration of hexoses under mild acidic conditions or formed as an intermediate in the Maillard reaction [10].
Moreover, uptake of hexoses by developing kernels from the apoplast is also an active process involving H+/hexose co transport.
It seems that the yeast Pichia stipitis, among pentose's fermenting microorganisms, is able to ferment xylose and hexose in ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysate under relevant conditions in the bioconversion process, such as pH, temperature, oxygen, agitation and composition of the medium (Hahn-Hagerdal, Linden, Senac, & Skoog, 1991; Ryding, Niklasson, & Liden, 1993; Sunitha, Lee, & Oh, 1999; Nigam, 2001; Agbogbo, Haagensen, Milam, & Wenger, 2008; Farias, Andrade, & Maugeri Filho, 2013).
Some members of this subgroup have been shown experimentally to transport hexoses, indicating a possible phylum-wide conservation of this function [12-14].
The carbohydrate region of the HSQC spectra were practically identical for compounds 1a/b and 3, the NMR data indicated the presence of two terminal 6-desoxy hexoses, one terminal hexose and two substituted hexoses.
Recent applications of metabolite profiling in cross-sectional or case control studies have linked alterations in hexoses, amino acids, ketone bodies, fatty acids, acylcarnitines, and phospholipids with T2D (3-16).
O amido e a celulose sao polissacarideos que consistem em unidades de hexose, a hemicelulose e um heteropolissacarideo formado por uma mistura de monomeros de pentoses e hexoses, a lignina e um polimero tridimensional complexo formado por compostos fenolicos e os oleos consistem de triglicerideos.
Relation between glomalin and root carbohydrates: Arbuscular mycorrhizas the mutualistic associations must acquire hexoses (mainly glucose) from the host to the fungal partner (Solaiman and Saito 1997; Schaarschmidt et al.
Hemicellulose is an amorphous structure formed of different heteropolymers including hexoses (D-glucose, D-galactose, and D-mannose) as well as pentose (D-xylose and L-arabinose).
When it was obvious that these cells showed tolerance to the high-fructose level in the medium, differing biochemical mechanisms reflecting addition of the two hexoses were sought by analyzing expression of various genes for the uptake, utilization, and effects of fructose.
