  • TPS1
  • In order to readily stop trehalose synthesis during recovery from stress, Tps3 must be phosphorylated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase, decreasing Tps2 activity and, consequently, increasing the concentration of T6P which, in turn, would inhibit Tps1. (wordpress.com)
  • Biological
  • Trehalose is an unusual non-reducing disaccharide that plays a variety of biological roles, from food storage to cellular protection from environmental stresses such as desiccation, pressure, heat-shock, extreme cold, and oxygen radicals. (ubc.ca)
