Trehalose-protein interaction in aqueous solution.

Abstract

A variety of sugars are known to enhance the stability of biomaterials. Trehalose, a nonreducing disaccharide composed of two alpha, alpha(1 --> 1)-linked D-glucopyranose units, appears to be one of the most effective protectants. Both in vivo and in vitro, trehalose protects biostructures such as proteins and membranes from damage due to dehydration, heat… (More)
