General description

Glyceraldehyde is a simple monosaccharide. Based on the number of carbon atoms and the type of carbonyl group present, glyceraldehyde belongs to subgroup triose. It is a colourless and sweet compound.

Application

DL-Glyceraldehyde has been used:
  • as modifying reagent in the preparation of crystallization solution
  • as a substrate to measure aldose reductase activity
  • in the preparation of d/l-glyceraldehyde stock to determine the specific activity of GAPDH (glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glyceraldehyde serves as an efficient cross-linking agent and is considered non-toxic. It is an intermediate of a number of metabolic such as glycolysis and pentose phosphate pathway.

Other Notes

DL-Glyceraldehyde is a substrate for the enzyme aldose reductase.
