Disease relevance of EINECS 207-429-4

  • Models of the trisaccharide, 1-kestose [beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2----1)-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2 in equilibrium with 1)-alpha-D -glucopyranoside], were analyzed with the molecular mechanics computer program MM2(87) to ascertain their inter-ring torsion angles, primary alcohol side-group orientations, and ring puckering [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of EINECS 207-429-4

  • No other studies of fructofuranoses have observed that crystallographic form, thus suggesting that the 18 hydrogen bonds created upon crystallization of 1-kestose support the ring deformation [1].
