glucose

(Humans as organisms) a simple sugar made by the body from food, which is used by cells to make energy in respiration

glucose

(= dextrose) Six-carbon sugar (aldohexose) widely distributed in plants and animals. Breakdown of glucose (glycolysis) is a major energy source for metabolic processes. In green plants, glucose is a major product of photosynthesis, and is stored as the polymer starch. In animals it is obtained chiefly from dietary di- and polysaccharides, but also by gluconeogenesis, and is stored as glycogen. Storage polymer in microorganisms is dextran. ...

Glucose

Glucose exists in several different molecular structures, but all of these structures can be divided into two families of mirror-images (stereoisomers). Only one set of these isomers exists in nature, those derived from the particular chiral form of glucose that is denoted D-glucose, or D-glucose. The chemical D-glucose is sometimes referred to as...

glucose

(gloo´kōs) a monosaccharide that is found in many foods, especially fruit, and is the end product of carbohydrate digestion in the body. Soon after digestion, other monosaccharides such as fructose and galactose get converted into glucose, so that it is the only monosaccharide present in significant amounts in body fluid...

Glucose

(GLU-kos) A building block for most carbohydrates. Digestion causes carbohydrates to break down into glucose. After digestion, glucose is carried in the blood and goes to body cells where it is used for energy or stored.

glucose

A hexose (6-carbon) sugar and the most common simple sugar. Glucose is important in animal respiration and other processes in organisms.
