Allose is an aldohexose sugar. It is a rare monosaccharide that has been isolated from the leaves of the African shrub Protea rubropilosa. It is soluble in water and practically insoluble in methanol. IUPAC nomenclature is a system of naming chemical compounds and of describing the science of chemistry in general. ... A chemical formula (also called molecular formula) is a concise way of expressing information about the atoms that constitute a particular chemical compound. ... The molecular mass (abbreviated MM) of a substance, called molecular weight and abbreviated as MW, is the mass of one molecule of that substance, relative to the unified atomic mass unit u (equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12). ... CAS registry numbers are unique numerical identifiers for chemical compounds, polymers, biological sequences, mixtures and alloys. ... The melting point of a solid is the temperature at which it changes state from solid to liquid. ... The simplified molecular input line entry specification or SMILES is a specification for unambiguously describing the structure of chemical molecules using short ASCII strings. ... An aldohexose is a hexose with an aldehyde group on one end. ... Monosaccharides are the simplest form of carbohydrates. ... Species See text Protea or sugarbush is a genus of flowers in the family Proteaceae, consisting of tropical African shrubs. ... Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol or wood alcohol, is a chemical compound with chemical formula CH3OH. It is the simplest alcohol, and is a light, volatile, colourless, flammable, poisonous liquid with a very faint odor. ...
Allose is a C-3 epimer of glucose. In chemistry, an epimer is a stereoisomer that has a different configuration at only one of several stereogenic centers. ... Glucose (Glc), a monosaccharide, is one of the most important carbohydrates. ...
Allose is an aldohexose which heretofore was not believed to occur naturally.
The new polysaccharides of this invention are produced by the process of cultivating certain new bacteria of the genus Pseudomonas in nutrient media to accumulate the polysaccharides in the medium from which the polysaccharides are eventually separated and recovered by known methods.
The presence of allose, galactose, glucose, mannose and glucuronic acid was observed.
