Galactose plays an important nutritional role as a source of energy and a structural component in the body. It has also been shown to have antibacterial activity limiting the invasion of some pathogens. However some people have galactose metabolism disorders called galactosemia. It is caused by a deficiency of galactose metabolism enzymes. In this case, it is necessary to eliminate lactose and galactose from the diet. Lactic acid bacteria differ in their ability to metabolize galactose. The metabolism of lactose/galactose may follow the Leloir pathway (S. thermophilus, L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, L. helveticus) or the tagatose-6-P metabolic pathway (L. casei, L. rhamnosus, L. lactis ssp. cremoris). The metabolism of lactose/galactose, which follows the tagatose-6-P pathway, results in the accumulation of small amounts of galactose in the medium, while galactose metabolism via the Leloir pathway is usually associated with the extracellular secretion of significant amounts of galactose. ...
Galactose Metabolism Galactose is a major dietary sugar for humans. The hydrolysis of the disaccharide lactose (in milk) yields galactose and glucose. Galactose and glucose are epimers that differ in their configuration at C-4. Thus the entry of galactose into glycolysis requires an epimerization reaction. This occurs via a four-step pathway called the galactose-glucose interconversion … Read more Galactose Metabolism. ...
In a previous study system level analysis of adaptively evolved yeast mutants showing improved galactose utilization revealed relevant mutations. The governing mutations were suggested to be in the Ras/PKA signaling pathway and ergosterol metabolism. Here site-directed mutants having one of the mutations, RAS2 Lys 77, RAS2 Tyr112 and ERG5 Pro 370 were constructed and evaluated. The mutants were also combined with over-expression of PGM2, earlier proved as a beneficial target for galactose utilization. The constructed strains were analyzed for their gross phenotype, transcriptome and targeted metabolites; and the results were compared to those obtained from reference strains and the evolved strains. The RAS2 Lys 77 mutation resulted in the highest specific galactose uptake rate among all the strains with an increased maximum specific growth rate on galactose. The RAS2 Tyr112 mutation also improved the specific galactose uptake rate and also resulted in many transcriptional changes, including ergosterol
Cellular adaptability to environmental changes depends on the collective actions of genes, mRNA, proteins and ligands, all of which are components of a genetic network. To understand the dynamics of a gene network in response to temporally and spatially environmental changes, we focus on the galactose utilization network in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This network allows yeast cells to metabolize galactose in the absence of glucose and is tightly repressed when glucose is available in the environment. The main question is how the Gal network is activated when glucose is depleted since both sugars cannot be metabolized simultaneously. Using a microfluidic device, we supplied yeast cells with both glucose and galactose before linearly depleting glucose at different rates. We tracked the onset and accumulation of a yellow fluorescent reporter-tagged Gal1p, the first enzyme of the Gal network. Our data shows that the glucose-depletion rate plays an important role in the activation of the ...
Personalized liver function tests: A Multiscale Computational Model Predicts Individual Human Liver Function From Single-Cell Metabolism. Understanding how liver function arises from the complex interaction of morphology, perfusion, and metabolism from single cells up to the entire organ requires systems-levels computational approaches. We report a multiscale mathematical model of the Human liver comprising the scales from single hepatocytes, over representation of ultra-structure and micro-circulation in the hepatic tissue, up to the entire organ integrated with perfusion. The model was validated against data on multiple spatial and temporal scales. Herein we describe the model construction and application to hepatic galactose metabolism demonstrating its utility via i) the personalization of liver function tests based on galactose elimination capacity (GEC), ii) the explanation of changes in liver function with aging, and iii) the prediction of population variability in liver function based on ...
We have shown that galactose metabolism plays a central role in biofilm formation by B. subtilis. Whereas accumulation of UDP-galactose can be toxic to B. subtilis during planktonic growth, it is required for the biosynthesis of EPS as a nucleotide sugar substrate and thus for matrix production. Consistently with the above, the genes encoding the Leloir pathway for galactose catabolism and the operon responsible for EPS biosynthesis show coordinated transcriptional regulation. Finally, we observed that B. subtilis also has the capacity to degrade galactan and thus acquire galactose from this naturally occurring polymer.. Galactose has been shown to be essential for the synthesis of various exopolysaccharides, such as colanic acid in E. coli (27). Similarly, enzymes in the Leloir pathway, and in particular the GalE epimerase, have been correlated with production of exopolysaccharide in Streptococcus thermophilus, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Neisseria strains (6, 28-31). Thus, our observation ...
In 1931, in a paper on the study of the metabolism of galactose in the human subject, Shay, Schloss and Bell1 concluded that this hexose was best suited for testing the carbohydrate function of the liver. In order for the urinary excretion of this sugar, orally administered, to act as a measure of hepatic carbohydrate function, they considered the following among the necessary conditions: (1) that there be no renal threshold for the excretion of galactose; (2) that galactose utilization remain unmodified by the activity of those endocrine glands known to affect glucose metabolism; (3) that galactose be practically unutilizable ...
Modulation of gene network activity allows cells to respond to changes in environmental conditions. For example, the galactose utilization network in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is activated by the presence of galactose but repressed by glucose. If both sugars are present, the yeast will first metabolize glucose, depleting it from the extracellular environment. Upon depletion of glucose, the genes encoding galactose metabolic proteins will activate. Here, we show that the rate at which glucose levels are depleted determines the timing and variability of galactose gene activation. Paradoxically, we find that Gal1p, an enzyme needed for galactose metabolism, accumulates more quickly if glucose is depleted slowly rather than taken away quickly. Furthermore, the variability of induction times in individual cells depends non-monotonically on the rate of glucose depletion and exhibits a minimum at intermediate depletion rates. Our mathematical modeling suggests that the dynamics of the metabolic ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids prevent d-galactose-induced cognitive deficits in prediabetic rats. AU - Guo, Yu Ru. AU - Lee, Hsiu Chuan. AU - Lo, Yun Chun. AU - Yu, Shao Chuan. AU - Huang, Shih Yi. PY - 2018/4/25. Y1 - 2018/4/25. N2 - Nutritional deficit of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) is closely related to cognitive impairment and depression in later life. Cognitive impairment and depression lead to comorbidities, such as metabolic syndrome, in elderly people. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of dietary n-3 PUFAs on cognition and depressive-like behavior in an accelerated senescence rat model with prediabetic status. Rats were cotreated with d-gal and sucrose solution for 7 months and then fed fish-oil- or flaxseed-oil-rich diets for 3 months. Cognitive impairment analysis and depressive-like behavioral testing were conducted using the Morris water maze (MWM) test and forced swimming test (FST), respectively. The MWM test results revealed that the ...
In the production of therapeutic proteins using CHO cell cultures, replacement of glucose by galactose can be used to control the glycosylation pattern of the product, especially to maximize the n-glycan galactosylation level.

This paper reports the methods and results of a computer-based search for causal relationships in the gene-regulation pathway of galactose metabolism in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The search uses recently published data from cDNA microarray experiments. A Bayesian method was applied to learn causal networks from a mixture of observational and experimental gene-expression data. The observational data were gene-expression levels obtained from unmanipulated "wild-type" cells. The experimental data were produced by deleting ("knocking out") genes and observing the expression levels of other genes. Causal relations predicted from the analysis on 36 galactose gene pairs are reported and compared with the known galactose pathway. Additional exploratory analyses are also reported.. ...
This month WHO finalizes revised recommendations on the intake of what are known as "free sugars", following peer-review by an external expert group and a public consultation last month.. The guideline will provide countries with recommendations on limiting the consumption of free sugars to reduce diet-related noncommunicable diseases, such as obesity and dental caries (tooth decay). Free sugars include monosaccharides (such as glucose and fructose) and disaccharides (such as sucrose - commonly known as table sugar - and lactose) that are added to foodstuffs by manufacturers, cooks and consumers. Free sugars also include the types of sugar that are naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit concentrates, but do not include the sugars found in non-refined foodstuffs, such as brown rice or fruit. Once finalized, the document will be cleared by WHOs Guidelines Review Committee before its official release later this year. WHOs current recommendation, from 2002, is that free sugars ...

Plasmid carrying the device containing Gal1 promoter was transformed into competent S.cerevisiae cells. Transformed cells were plated on 2% agar in media A (yeast nitrogen base, MET, LYS, HIS, URA), complemented with 2% glucose and cultured at 30℃ for 48h. The colonies were then inoculated in the liquid media A complemented with 2% glucose and were grown at 30℃. Culture was stopped and glucose was removed from media with washing cells by PBS till they reached the exponential phase. Cells were then pelleted and diluted and cultured on liquid medium containing galactose concentrations between 0.25% and 2% w/v overnight. Samples were taken out for quantification. In quantification process, concentrations of liquid media containing cells were measured at λ600nm and then liquid media were removed and cells were washed twice and refolded to a OD600 = 1.0 concentration by Buffer ( 0.05 M NaH2PO4, 0.1 M NaCl, 0.5 M Imidazole ) for ELIASA analysis.

Wanted* (cross-posted) *Needed* An E.coli that has a high expression of the lac operon specifically high expression of the lac-permease and b-galactosidase proteins), and hence has unrestricted growth on lactose. However (and heres the cruncher) the strain must also have mutations in its pts carbohydrate system (specifically HPro and enz1) so it cannot utilise pts carbohydrates to any great extent compared to lactose and must also have mutations in its galactose permease system so it cannot readily use galactose as a carbohydrate source. That is does a strain exist that can preferentially use lactose over other common carbohydrates as a primary energy source? Where is this strain?

Dear net readers, I wonder if you could help me. My problem is this - I want to do northerns/growth curves on strains overexpressing certain genes from the gal1 promoter. The overexpression decreases the growth rate, meaning I cant harvest the strains all at once at log phase for analysis (if I grow from scatch on galactose). I would like to induce the promoter at say OD600 0.3-0.4, then allow four hours more growth for induction before harvest. What is the best way to do this? I have heard of growing on glycerol/lactate medium followed by galactose addition at the appropriate time (anyone have a description of glycerol/lactate synthetic medium?). However, for certain reasons I would prefer to use a fermentable substrate. Could I make medium with a low glucose conc, with normal galactose, and rely on depletion of the glucose for induction? How much glucose should I use to see depletion by about early log phase? Any tips would be much appreciated. Cheers, Colin MacDiarmid University of Auckland ...

Cristae structural changes have been documented decades ago (Hackenbrock, 1966, 1968a,b), but our understanding of how these changes occur and their functional consequence is largely unknown. Here, we demonstrate a novel mechanism by which cristae are physiologically regulated. Changes in energy substrate availability are sensed by mitochondrial SLC25A transporters, which in turn regulate OPA1 oligomerization. OPA1 oligomerization is then required to modulate cristae width and regulate assembly of the ATP synthase, in a mitochondrial fusion‐independent manner. The physiological importance of this mechanism is highlighted by the demonstration that a fusion‐incompetent form of OPA1(Q297V) rescued OCR, ATP synthase assembly and cell growth of OPA1 KO MEFs in galactose media, which forces mitochondrial respiration for ATP production.. Although it is known that OPA1 oligomers disassemble during cell death leading to release of proapoptotic factors (Frezza et al, 2006) and that OPA1 oligomer ...

Nutritionally, people dont need any sugar in their diet. WHO recommends that if people do consume free sugars, they keep their intake below 10% of their total energy needs, and reduce it to less than 5% for additional health benefits. This is equivalent to less than a single serving (at least 250 ml) of commonly consumed sugary drinks per day," says Dr Francesco Branca, Director of WHOs Department of Nutrition for Health and Development.. According to the new WHO report, national dietary surveys indicate that drinks and foods high in free sugars can be a major source of unnecessary calories in peoples diets, particularly in the case of children, adolescents and young adults.. It also points out that some groups, including people living on low incomes, young people and those who frequently consume unhealthy foods and beverages, are most responsive to changes in prices of drinks and foods and, therefore, gain the highest health benefits.. Using fiscal policies to reduce consumption ...

Screening the kinome using traditional SDL screening approaches revealed that many kinase deletion alleles show few or no SDL interactions (Sharifpoor et al. 2012). To test the utility of the barFLEX array for revealing condition-specific SDL interactions, we next treated the dun1Δ-barFLEX pool with a sublethal dose of the DNA methylating agent MMS (Figure 4, B and C). We examined both a control (ura3Δ-barFLEX) and the dun1Δ-barFLEX collections throughout 20 generations of growth in three different conditions: (1) galactose (to induce overexpression) for 20 generations; (2) galactose for five generations of growth followed by addition of 0.0001% MMS for 15 generations; (3) galactose for five generations followed by addition of 0.001% MMS for five generations to a total of 20 generations. Glucose (noninduced) controls were performed in parallel. The dose of MMS used in the experiment was selected to induce only a slight fitness defect in the dun1Δ strain. In the presence of 0.001% MMS, the WT ...

Since the 1970s, galactose metabolism in Lactococcus lactis has been in debate. Different studies led to diverse outcomes making it difficult to conclude whether galactose uptake was PEP- or ATP-dependent and decide what the exact connection was between galactose and lactose uptake and metabolism. It was shown that some Lactococcus strains possess two galactose-specific systems - a permease and a PTS, even if they lack the lactose utilization plasmid, proving that a lactose-independent PTSGal exists. However, the PTSGal transporter was never identified. Here, with the help of transcriptome analyses and genetic knock-out mutants, we reveal the identities of two low-affinity galactose PTSs. A novel plant-niche-related PTS component Llmg_0963 forming a hybrid transporter Llmg_0963PtcBA and a glucose/mannose-specific PTS are shown to be involved in galactose transport in L. lactis MG1363 ...
Galactose-deficient IgA1 has been proposed as an important effector molecule in IgA nephropathy (IgAN). We previously showed that the galactose-deficient IgA1-specific monoclonal antibody KM55 can detect circulating galactose-deficient IgA1 in patients with IgAN, enabling us to study the molecular roles of galactose-deficient IgA1. Herein, we further examined the pathophysiological significance of galactose-deficient IgA1 in glomerular deposits of patients with IgAN by immunohistochemistry using KM55. Immunostaining of galactose-deficient IgA1 with KM55 was performed in paraffin-embedded sections of renal biopsy specimens from 48 patients with IgAN and 49 patients with other renal diseases such as lupus nephritis, HCV-related nephropathy, IgA vasculitis with nephritis (IgA-VN), and membranous nephropathy ...
The role of the two galactose binding sites of ricin B chain in ricin toxicity was evaluated by studying a series of ricin point mutants. Wild-type (WT) ricin and three ricin B chain point mutants having mutations in either 1) the first galactose binding domain (site 1 mutant, Met in place of Lys-40 and Gly in place of Asn-46), 2) the second galactose binding domain (site 2 mutant, Gly in place of Asn-255), or 3) both galactose binding domains (double site mutant containing all three amino acid replacements formerly stated) were expressed in Xenopus oocytes and then reassociated with recombinant ricin A chain. The different ricin B chains were mannosylated to the same extent. Cytotoxicity of these toxins was evaluated when cell entry was mediated either by galactose-containing receptors or through an alternate receptor, the mannose receptor of macrophages. WT ricin and each of the single domain mutants was able to kill Vero cells following uptake by galactose containing receptors. Lactose ...
Sugar consumption, especially added sugars, is under attack. Various government and health authorities have suggested new sugar recommendations and guidelines as low as 5% of total calories from free sugars. Definitions for total sugars, free sugars, and added sugars are not standardized, nor are there accepted nutrient databases for this information. Our objective was to measure total sugars and added sugars in sample meal plans created by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). Utilizing the Nutrition Data System for Research (NDSR) nutritional database, results found that plans created by the USDA and AND averaged 5.1% and 3.1% calories from added sugar, 8.7% and 3.1% from free sugar, and 23.3% and 21.1% as total sugars respectively. Compliance with proposed added sugar recommendations would require strict dietary compliance and may not be sustainable for many Americans. Without an accepted definition and equation for calculating added
A cDNA encoding the Mac-2 antigen, a surface marker highly expressed by thioglycollate-elicited macrophages, has been cloned by immunoscreening of a lambda gt11-P388D1 expression library. The nucleotide sequence of the cDNA is identical to that of carbohydrate-binding protein 35, a galactose-specific lectin found in fibroblasts and highly homologous to a rat IgE-binding protein from basophilic leukemia cells. The in vitro synthesized Mac-2 protein displayed the expected carbohydrate- and IgE-binding properties. By pulse-chase analysis and subcellular fractionation studies, the Mac-2 protein was found in the cytosol but was also seen to accumulate in the extracellular medium. The latter finding was surprising in view of the fact that the cDNA did not encode a signal peptide or transmembrane domain. An alternatively spliced cDNA with the potential to encode a NH2 terminally extended Mac-2 protein with a stretch of hydrophobic amino acids at its NH2 terminus was also found, but it is not clear ...
Quantitative light microscope radioautographs of galactose-3H and phlorizin-3H were prepared from freeze-dried plastic-embedded hamster small intestine incubated in vitro. The usual uphill epithelial cell accumulation of galactose accompanied by a somewhat smaller lamina propria accumulation was observed in control tissue incubated 3 min in 1 mM galactose-3H. The addition of 5 x 10-4 M phlorizin to the medium blocked uphill accumulation, but did not prevent galactose equilibration with the epithelial cells. The galactose content of the lamina propria was considerably less than the galactose content of the epithelial cell. Varying the phlorizin-3H content of the medium from 0.6 to 60 µM revealed a brush border binding of phlorizin which followed a Langmuir adsorption isotherm with a half-saturation constant of 13 µM and a maximum binding of 84 µmoles of phlorizin/liter of microvilli or 2.6 x 106 sites/epithelial cell. The phlorizin content of the epithelial cell compartment, excluding ...

Galactose (galacto- + -ose, "milk sugar"), sometimes abbreviated Gal, is a monosaccharide sugar that is about as sweet as glucose, and about 30% as sweet as sucrose. It is a C-4 epimer of glucose. Galactan is a polymeric form of galactose found in hemicellulose, and forming the core of the galactans, a class of natural polymeric carbohydrates. The word "Galactose" is coined by Charles Weissmanin mid 19th century from Greek galaktos("milk") and the generic chemical suffix for sugars -ose. Galactose exists in both open-chain and cyclic form. The open-chain form has a carbonyl at the end of the chain. Four isomers are cyclic, two of them with a pyranose (six-membered) ring, two with a furanose (five-membered) ring. Galactofuranose occurs in bacteria, fungi and protozoa , and is recognized by a putative chordate immune lectin intelectin through its exocyclic 1,2-diol. In the cyclic form there are two anomers, named alpha and beta, since the transition from the open-chain form to the cyclic form ...
