Digalacturonic acid is a useful disaccharide for synthesis of other oligosaccharides and antigens, enzyme activity assays and co-crystallization applications.

Digalacturonic acid (DGA), is derived in vivo from pectin catabolism. It has been useful for the co-crystallization of enzymes such as proteinase K. DGA is also used in galacturonic acid metabolism research as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterized endo- and exopolygalacturonase(s) and gluconase(s). DGA is used to study the transport of oligogalacturonides by systems such as the TogMNAB ABC transporter. This highly purified reagent is in stock and available for your research.
