Common Name Allose
Description D-allose is a rare sugar found in nature and, because of its very limited amount and of the high cost associated with its synthesis, its physiological functions remain virtually unknown (PMID 16080505). It is believed to have inhibitory effect on cancer cell proliferation (PMID 16142305), protective effects against ischemia reperfusion injury (PMID 14605979, 16716947), immunosuppressant on allogenic orthotopic liver transplantation (PMID 11120048), neuroprotective effects against retinal ischemia (PMID 16565406), suppress development of salt-induced hypertension (PMID 16148613) and an inhibitory effect on human ovarian carcinoma cells (PMID 16080505) 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. Allose is a C-3 epimer of glucose. [edit] References * Merck Index, 11th Edition, 279. [wikipedia]
