Dear student,


Galactose is a type of sugar found in milk products and sugar beets. It is also made by the body. It is considered a nutritive sweetener because it has calories.


Galactose is a monosaccharide constituent, together with glucose, of the disaccharide lactose. The hydrolysis of lactose to glucose and galactose is catalyzed by the enzyme beta-galactosidase, a lactase.


Individuals who lack this enzyme are 'lactose intolerant' and unable to realize the nutritive potential of milk sugars. The lactose then passes to the large intestine where it is digested by bacteria, producing gas and flatulence.


Galactose is a monosaccharide. It contains six carbons and an aldehyde group and is classified as an aldose and a hexose. Both the D and L forms are found in nature. The structure depicted at the right is the D isomer. D-Galactose is commonly found in milk as part of the disaccharide lactose. L-Galactose is present in polysaccharides, such as agar.


Galactose is a sugar formed from dietary lactose. It is converted to galactose-1-phosphate and other metabolites by several enzymes, especially phosphogalactose uridyl transferase. A decrease or lack of the enzyme will cause elevated galactose and galactose-1-phosphate levels in the bloodstream.

Why does halogen not add to double bond at higher temperatures?
 
 
At higher temperature,the reaction is not favoured as the radical formed will fall apart to regenerate the starting material. Thanks & Regards Aarti Gupta askiitians Faculty

alkane molar mass of 72 g/mol
 
 
the general formula of alkane is CnH(2n+2) its molar mass is 70 it implies 12n +2n+2=70 n=5 therefore it is pentane. thanks and regards sunil kr askIITian faculty

alkane molecular formula is cn h2n+2 so that carbon mass 12 and hydrogen mass 1 then 12n+2n +2=72 then it is pentane
