Re: Glucosamine

In Response To: Glucosamine (Mary Forthofer)

Dear Mary,
Other than the fact that both have an amino sugar backbone (glucosamine) they are not related structurally, and glucosamine sulphate (while it might be helpful for arthritis) will not "fit" the specificity requirements for wheat germ agglutinin, which binds only to the "n-acetylated form.

Good question!
Peter
