(= D-mannose) Hexose identical to D-glucose except that the orientation of the -H and -OH on carbon 2 are interchanged (ie. the 2-epimer of glucose). Found as constituent of polysaccharides and glycoproteins.
Mannose is a sugar monomer of the aldohexose series of carbohydrates. Mannose is a C-2 epimer of glucose. Mannose is important in human metabolism, especially in the glycosylation of certain proteins. Several congenital disorders of glycosylation are associated with mutations in enzymes involved in mannose metabolism. ==Structure== Mannose commonl...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mannose
