Ribose Analysis Service

Ribose Analysis Service

Roles of Ribose

Ribose is a molecule produced naturally from glucose in the human body via the pentose phosphate pathway, primarily in the form of D-ribose. D-ribose does not exist directly in food sources, but riboflavin, which helps produce D-ribose, is found in large amounts in eggs, nuts, vegetables, beef, and other foods. D-ribose is not only the backbone of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), but it is also crucial for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which cells rely on for survival. In the medical field, D-ribose has great potential in the treatment of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, congestive heart failure (CHF), and other diseases. D-ribose can also be used to produce supplements to quickly replenish ATP levels in exercising muscles.

Ribose Analysis Service at CD BioGlyco

Metabolic analysis is the scientific study of the biological metabolic process of targeted metabolites, thereby inferring the metabolic level and health status of the organism. CD BioGlyco has developed comprehensive Carbohydrate Metabolism Analysis solutions to quantify Monosaccharides, Disaccharides, Oligosaccharides, and Polysaccharides present in samples. Our metabolic analysis services are widely used in biological research, food, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, and other fields.

Our monosaccharide analysis package contains 13 substances including fucose, arabinose, galactose, glucose, xylose, mannose, fructose, ribose, rhamnose, galacturonic acid, glucuronic acid, mannuronic acid, and guluronic acid. We also customize it based on your need to add specific compounds to the monosaccharide analysis package. For sampling accuracy, we crush the sample before weighing it. The weighed samples (such as plants, animal tissues, cells, bacteria, fungi, viruses, plasma or serum, urine, feces, soil, etc.) are then acidolyzed into simple sugars. Use an ion chromatography system with an electrochemical detector to separate and detect the acidolyzed monosaccharide components, and obtain the ion chromatogram and chromatographic detection data of the sample. Then process and analyze the data and form a complete project report.

Ribose is one of the substances in the monosaccharide analysis package. We measure the ribose content in tissue and cell samples of animals by ion chromatography equipped with an electrochemical detector, and then evaluate its metabolic level and study its metabolic pathways.
