Trehalose, a natural disaccharide, consists of two glucose molecules linked by an a, a-1,1-glucoside bond. Apart from its function as a reserve carbohydrate, trehalose is known for its role as a stress protectant in many organisms across kingdoms. It is present in plants, invertebrates, fungi, and prokaryotes, but not in mammals. Despite its well-known protective roles against desiccation, freezing, starvation, and osmotic stress [1], trehalose has escaped categorization into a specific… CONTINUE READING
