Application

D-Fucose (6-deoxy-D-galactose, rhodeose) may be used to study enzymes involved in its mutarotation to form L-fucose. It may be used as a reference compound in the analysis of carbohydrate metabolites. D-Fucose may be used to study biological processes such as adhesion.

Biochem/physiol Actions

D-Fucose is a nonmetabolizable analog of L-Arabinose.

LacI/GalR transcription regulators have extensive, non-conserved interfaces between their regulatory domains and the 18 amino acids that serve as 'linkers' to their DNA-binding domains. These non-conserved interfaces might contribute to functional differences between paralogs. Previously, two chimeras created by domain
