Talose is an aldohexose sugar. It is an unnatural monosaccharide that is soluble in water and slightly soluble 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. ... 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. ...


Talose is a C-2 epimer of galactose. In chemistry, an epimer is a stereoisomer that has a different configuration at only one of several stereogenic centers. ... Galactose (also called brain sugar) is a type of sugar found in dairy products, in sugar beets and other gums and mucilages. ...

ARS | Publication request: Effect of Alpha-Carotene Volatile Degradation Products, D-Talose and Glycerol on Aflatoxin ... (340 words)
AFB1 from CO was 95% inhibited at 249 ug/ml talose and completely inhibited at 556 ug/ml along with most of the growth.
AFB1 on SO was higher than on S due to the contribution of oil, but toxin formation fell in parallel on both media indicating that TG utilization for AFB1 was not affected by talose.
Talose did not affect growth on either medium.
ARS | Publication request: Transmission of Aflatoxin B1 Inhibition in Mycelia of A. Flavus and Other Inhibitor Studies (297 words)
Delphinidin showed a sharply lower level of inhibition in the secondarily infected discs.
Dose/response curves were derived for D- talose, 2-deoxy- and 6-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG and 6DG), and xylose, sugars previously shown to inhibit conversion of triglyceride to AFB1 by A. flavus.
The concentration for 50% inhibition (I50) for talose was 146 ug/ml for AFB1 and 318 ug/ml for growth.
