Product information "L-Fucose (6-Deoxy-L-galactose), min. 98%"

L-Fucose CAS 2438-80-4 (6-Deoxy-L-galactose) may be used for different purposes.

1. In studies of fucoidan polysaccharide containing glycans.
2. L-Fucose is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize enzymes such as the fucosidase(s), l-fucose isomerase(s) and L-fucose dehydrogenase(s).
3. L-Fucose may be used to study organelles, bacterial microcompartments, involved in the degradation of plant and algal cell wall sugars.
4. L-Fucose may be used as a reference compound in rare sugar identification and analysis.
5. A more and more important role of fucose,  is within the biopharmaceutical industry and, specifically, the production of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Antibody-dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) is the primary mechanism of action for many therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. The cytotoxic effect of the mAbs is more or less based on the portion of fucose of the N-linked glycans. The exact amount of fucose must be detected quickly and unambiguously while production. Pure fucose can serve as a standard for this purpose.
