  • n. A classname applied, in organic chemistry, to carbohydrates containing three atoms of oxygen in their molecules, such as glycerose (OCH.CH(OH)CH2OH).
  • n. A combining-form to indicate the combination into one molecule of three carbohydrate radicals, as in raffinose (melitriose), which is a saccharotriose.

  • It is suggested that ad libitum feeding conditions decrease NAD availability which also decreases metabolism of the triose phosphate glycolytic intermediates, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone-phosphate, which can spontaneously decompose into methylglyoxal MG.

  • We had been mistakenly unsuccessful in not finding the small amount of transfer that was later detected in the triose P isomerase reaction.

  • The low levels of NAD and pyruvate caused by net synthesis of 2, 3-bisPglycerate shifted the equilibrium of the glycolytic intermediates toward high triose-Ps21.

  • Asymmetric labeling due to incomplete equilibration at the triose-P isomerase step seemed unlikely given the enzyme's high efficiency.

  • Using measurements of isotope exchange rates we were led to conclude that the accumulation of triose-P intermediates in human red cells that were incubated with high levels of orthophoshate was due to equilibrium and not

  • It had been observed by Harland Wood's group at Western Reserve that when 14C-lactate or 14C-glycerol are fed to a fasted animal the labeling of the glucose units of liver glycogen was such as to suggest that triose-P isomerase had failed to equilibrate its two triose phosphate substrates during synthesis, or that the condensation reaction of FDP aldolase did not give equal labeling of the two halves of

  • With C. Martius he had succeeded in preparing triose-reductone.

  • The authors point out in conclusion that the conditions of instability and decomposition of the nitrates of the monose-triose series are exactly those noted with the cellulose nitrates as directly prepared and freed from residues of the nitrating acids.
