Abstract

The rare sugar D-allose produced from D-psicose using an immobilized L-rhamnose isomerase bioreactor was shown to have weak scavenging activity toward reactive oxygen species (ROS) and potent inhibitory effect on production of ROS from stimulated neutrophils. These findings may have important implications in understanding the ameliorative effect of D-allose in transplantation and ischemia/reperfusion injury.
