D-Allulose is a low-calorie sweetener and has broad applications in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Recently, most studies focuse on D-allulose production from D-fructose by D-allulose 3-epimerase (DAEase). However, the major blocker of industrial production of D-allulose is the poor thermostability. In this study, site-directed mutagenesis at the interface regions of Dorea sp. DAEase was carried out, and the F154Y/E191D/I193F mutation was obtained. The mutant protein displayed much higher thermostability, with a t1/2 value of 20...

D-Allulose as a low-energy and special bioactive monosaccharide sugar is essential for human health. In this study, the D-psicose-3-epimerase gene (DPEase) of Agrobacterium tumefaciens was transferred into thermotolerant Kluyveromyces marxianus to decrease the production cost of D-allulose and reduce the number of manufacturing procedures. The cell regeneration of K. marxianus and cyclic catalysis via whole-cell reaction were investigated to achieve the sustainable application of K. marxianus and the consumption of residual D-fructose...

The study investigated an integrated bioprocessing of raw and by-products from sugarcane and dairy industries for production of non-digestible prebiotic and functional ingredients. The low-priced feedstock, whey, molasses, table sugar, jaggery, etc., were subjected to transglucosylation reactions catalyzed by dextransucrase from Leuconostoc mesenteroides MTCC 10508. HPLC analysis approximated production of about 11-14 g L-1 trisaccharide i.e. 2-α-D-glucopyranosyl-lactose (4-galactosyl-kojibiose) from the feedstock prepared from table sugar, jaggery, cane molasses and liquid whey, containing about 30 g L-1 sucrose and lactose each...

d-Allulose 3-epimerase (DAEase) catalyzes the epimerization between d-fructose and d-allulose. We had PCR-cloned and overexpressed the gene encoding Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 DAEase (AsDAEase) in Escherichia coli. A high yield of active AsDAEase, 35,300U/L or 1350U/g of wet cells, was acquired with isopropyl β-d-1-thiogalactopyranoside induction at 20°C for 20h. Although only six residues including residue 234 located in tetrameric interface are different between AsDAEase and A. tumefaciens DAEase (AtDAEase), the specific activity of purified AsDAEase is much larger than that of AtDAEase...

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), an incretin gastrointestinal hormone, is secreted when stimulated by nutrients including metabolizable sugars such as glucose and fructose. d-Allulose (allulose), also known as d-psicose, is a C-3 isomer of d-fructose and a rare sugar with anti-diabetic or anti-obese effects in animal models. In the present study, we examined whether an oral administration of allulose could stimulate GLP-1 secretion in rats, and investigated the underlying mechanisms. Oral, but not intraperitoneal, administration of allulose (0...

d-allulose is a rare sugar with zero energy that can be consumed by obese/overweight individuals. Many studies have suggested that zero-calorie d-allulose has beneficial effects on obesity-related metabolism in mouse models, but only a few studies have been performed on human subjects. Therefore, we performed a preliminary study with 121 Korean subjects (aged 20-40 years, body mass index ≥ 23 kg/m²). A randomized controlled trial involving placebo control (sucralose, 0.012 g × 2 times/day), low d-allulose (d-allulose, 4 g × 2 times/day), and high d-allulose (d-allulose, 7 g × 2 times/day) groups was designed...

Overeating and arrhythmic feeding promote obesity and diabetes. Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) agonists are effective anti-obesity drugs but their use is limited by side effects. Here we show that oral administration of the non-calorie sweetener, rare sugar D-allulose (D-psicose), induces GLP-1 release, activates vagal afferent signaling, reduces food intake and promotes glucose tolerance in healthy and obese-diabetic animal models. Subchronic D-allulose administered at the light period (LP) onset ameliorates LP-specific hyperphagia, visceral obesity, and glucose intolerance...

D -Allose is a potential medical sugar because it has anticancer, antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, and immunosuppressant activities. Allose production from fructose as a cheap substrate was performed by a one-pot reaction using Flavonifractor plautii D -allulose 3-epimerase (FP-DAE) and Clostridium thermocellum ribose 5-phosphate isomerase (CT-RPI). The optimal reaction conditions for allose production were pH 7.5, 60°C, 0.1 g/l FP-DAE, 12 g/l CT-RPI, and 600 g/l fructose in the presence of 1 mM Co2+ ...

The rapid increase in the prevalence of obesity worldwide has been partially attributed to the overconsumption of added sugars. Recent guidelines call for limiting the consumption of simple sugars to less than 10% of daily caloric consumption. High intensity sweeteners are regulated as food additives and include aspartame, acesulfame-k, neotame, saccharin, sucralose, cyclamate and alitame. Steviol glycosides and Luo Han Guo fruit extracts are high intensity sweeteners that are designated as generally recognized as safe (GRAS)...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize L-rhamnose isomerase (L-RI) from the thermophilic bacterium Clostridium stercorarium and apply it to produce D-allose from D-allulose. RESULTS: A recombinant L-RI from C. stercorarium exhibited the highest specific activity and catalytic efficiency (k cat /K m ) for L-rhamnose among the reported L-RIs. The L-RI was applied to the high-level production of D-allose from D-allulose. The isomerization activity for D-allulose was maximal at pH 7, 75 °C, and 1 mM Mn2+ over 10 min reaction time...

The aim of the study was to covalently immobilize Smt3-D-psicose 3-epimerase onto functionalized iron oxide magnetic nanoparticles. After immobilization, Km of the immobilized enzyme increased, however, Vmax was nearly the same as that of its free form, indicating that immobilization has no detrimental effects on its catalytic output. The covalent immobilization caused a reduction in the deactivation rate constant (kd) values leading to 4-5 fold enhancement in its half-life at 50-65°C, indicating significant thermal stability of the iron-enzyme nanobioconjugate...

Dietary restriction (DR) is an effective intervention known to increase lifespan in a wide variety of organisms. DR also delays the onset of aging-associated diseases. DR mimetics, compounds that can mimic the effects of DR, have been intensively explored. d-Allulose (d-Alu), the C3-epimer of d-fructose, is a rare sugar that has various health benefits, including anti-hyperglycemia and anti-obesity effects. Here, we report that d-Alu increased the lifespan of Caenorhabditis elegans both under monoxenic and axenic culture conditions...

BACKGROUND: Rare sugars including d-allulose, d-tagatose, and d-sorbose are present in limited quantities in nature; some of these rare sugars are now commercially produced using microbial enzymes. Apart from the anti-obesity and anti-hyperglycaemic activities of d-allulose, effects of these sugars on lipid metabolism have not been investigated. Therefore, we aimed to determine if and how d-tagatose and d-sorbose modulate lipid metabolism in rats. After feeding these rare sugars to rats, parameters on lipid metabolism were determined...

OBJECTIVE: d-Allulose, a C-3 epimer of d-fructose, has been reported to decrease body weight and adipose tissue weight in animal studies and is expected to be a potent antiobese sweetener. Our animal study suggested that one of the mechanisms of d-allulose's antiobesity function is an increase in energy expenditure. However, a few studies have thus far explored the underlying mechanism in humans. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of a single ingestion of d-allulose on postprandial energy metabolism in healthy participants...

D-Psicose (D-ribo-2-hexulose or D-allulose), an epimer of D-fructose is considered as a rare low-calorie sugar displaying important physiological functions. Enzymatic production using ketose 3-epimerases is the feasible process for the production of D-Psicose. However, major drawbacks in application of ketose 3-epimerases are bioconversion efficiency and reusability of the enzyme. We have attempted immobilization of ketose 3-epimerases from Agrobacterium tumefaciens (agtu) D-psicose 3-epimerase (DPEase) on graphene oxide...

D-Allulose-containing rare sugar sweeteners have been categorized into two types, rare sugar syrup (RSS), consisting of 4 rare monosaccharides, and modified glucose syrup (MGS), rich in D-allulose, which was previously referred to D-psicose. The anti-obesity effect of RSS and D-allulose has been already clarified, but that of rare monosaccharides other than D-allulose in RSS has not yet been well understood. Here, we investigated and compared the anti-obesity effect of RSS and MGS in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into 4 dietary groups: a high-sucrose control diet group (S), a high-fructose corn syrup diet group (HFCS), an RSS diet group (RSS), and an MGS diet group (MGS)...

Ingestion of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is associated with the risk of both diabetes and obesity. Rare sugar syrup (RSS) has been developed by alkaline isomerization of HFCS and has anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects. However, the influence of RSS on glucose metabolism has not been explored. We investigated whether long-term administration of RSS maintains glucose tolerance and whether the underlying mechanism involves hepatic glucokinase translocation. Wistar rats were administered water, RSS, or HFCS in drinking water for 10 weeks and then evaluated for glucose tolerance, insulin tolerance, liver glycogen content, and subcellular distribution of liver glucokinase...
