Disease relevance of Deoxygalactose


High impact information on Deoxygalactose


Biological context of Deoxygalactose


Anatomical context of Deoxygalactose

  • Studies with tetraploid hybrid cells reveal that resistance to deoxygalactose is a recessive trait and that cells with high resistance do not complement those with low resistance [12].
  • In cell lines with low resistance, the Km for galactose, Ki for deoxygalactose, Km for ATP, and thermolability were not significantly altered compared to sensitive parental cells [12].
