General description

Glucose/dextrose is a carbohydrate compound or an aldohexose, present in humans. It is used as fuel by cells. Glucose consists of six carbon atoms and an aldehyde group. This monosaccharide can exist in an open-chain (acyclic) and ring (cyclic) form. It plays an important role in animal metabolism. Glucose, a major product of photosynthesis, participates in cellular respiration to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).

Application

D-(+)-Glucose has been used:
  • as a component of Tris-glucose-EDTA (TGE) buffer for the preparation of bacterial DNA
  • in the preparation of peptide dilution buffer (PDB)
  • in the preparation of M17 broth medium
  • in the preparation of phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) buffer, used in phosphate calcium transfection

  1. How does the storage temperature relate to shipping conditions?

    The storage conditions that a Sigma-Aldrich catalog and label recommend for products are deliberately conservative. For many products, long-term storage at low temperatures will increase the time during which they are expected to remain in specification and therefore are labeled accordingly. Where short-term storage, shipping time frame, or exposure to conditions other than those recommended for long-term storage will not affect product quality, Sigma-Aldrich will ship at ambient temperature. The products sensitive to short-term exposure to conditions other than their recommended long-term storage are shipped on wet or dry ice. Ambient temperature shipping helps to control shipping costs for our customers. At any time, our customers can request wet- or dry-ice shipment, but the special handling is at customer expense if our product history indicates that the product is stable for regular shipment. See Shipping and Storage for more information.

  2. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  3. What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?

    Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product. 

  4. Is Product G7528, D-(+)-Glucose, the same as dextrose?

    Yes, the D-(+) form of glucose is also known as dextrose.

  5. Is Product G7528, D-(+)-Glucose, the alpha or the beta form of D-(+)-Glucose?

    This product is a mixture of alpha and beta anomers, although it is primarily the alpha anomer.

Glucose metabolism is regulated by the opposing actions of insulin and glucagon. Insulin is released from pancreatic ß cells in response to high blood glucose levels and regulates glucose metabolism through its actions on muscle, liver, and adipose tissue.
