The utilization of heptoses and related compounds by bacteria and yeasts was investigated. Most cultures metabolized sedoheptulose, which was the only sugar dissimilated under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. No other heptuloses were utilized by these organisms. Some cultures were able to oxidize various heptoses to the corresponding heptonic acids and certain Acetobacter strains produced other compounds. Heptitols were attacked by only the Acetobacter species. Heptonic acids were… Expand

TLDR
The results are interpreted as indicating that in Sauternes yeast there is a transferring agent common to fructose and glucose and with a greater affinity for the former, which must be prior to the phosphorylation step. Expand
Production of idoheptulosan from sedoheptulosan by microorganisms
TLDR
Microbial production of idoheptulosan has been established using a two-stage fermentation system using strains of Aureobacterium, Pseudomonas, Paracoccus or soil isolates of coryneform bacteria. Expand
ANALYSIS OF MONOSACCHARIDES IN AVOCADO BY HPLC
Avocados contain significant quantities of the 7-carbon alcohol, perseitol, the ketoheptose, D- manno heptulose, and fructose and glucose. A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) procedureExpand
Metabolism of mannoheptulose in the rat. I. Diabetogenic action.
TLDR
It is postulated that the glucose is derived from conversion of mannoheptulose and/or from gluconeogenesis, and is followed by hyperglycemia, glucosuria, and glycogen deposition in male rats. Expand

The Utilization of Certain Sugars and Their Derivatives by Bacteria
TLDR
In the present investigation a number of "substituted" sugars are employed and the ability of various bacteria to make use of these modified sugar molecules with the utilization of the commoner sugars from which they were derived is compared. Expand
Carbohydrate Utilization by Hydrocarbon Bacteria
TLDR
The purpose of the present investigation is to study the utilization of a considerable number of simple carbohydrates and carbohydrate-alcohols, as well as some related substances, containing chains of four to seven carbon atoms, by Bacterium aliphaticum. Expand
PREPARATION OF SOME NEW BRANCHED-CHAIN CARBOHYDRATES FROM D-α-FRUCTOHEPTONIC LACTONE
D-α-Fructoheptonic lactone (I) was oxidized with an equimolar amount of periodic acid to give formaldehyde and a hexuronic lactone (II) which was hydrolyzed to crystallineExpand

Detection of Sugars on Paper Chromatograms
TLDR
Modifications are introduced, based on a test given by Feigl for reducing sugars, which eliminate the heating step, and in which the reagents are applied in organic solvents, thus removing the danger of migration of the sugar spots. Expand
