13) As lactase goes to work, glucose and galactose are separated from one another--and then each is separately absorbed (Figure 1).
The studies of the hydrolytic activity of [beta]-GAL and of the sensitivity of the lactose bio-sensing system were carried out with GOD (glucose concentration was measured after 10 min incubation with [beta]-GAL) because of the low selectivity of GAO towards galactose in the presence of lactose.

The galactose finding is quite novel, and we don't have a good scientific explanation for why we found that," Dr.

When added to the milk the lactase breaks down the lactose into the easily digested simple sugars glucose and galactose.
Washington, June 1 (ANI): Commonalities between flies and humans can help offer a valuable new model for galactosemia, a metabolic disease resulting from an inherited defect that prevents the proper metabolism of galactose, a sugar commonly found in dairy products, like milk, say scientists.
The disease is caused by a defect of galactose-1phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT), [2] an enzyme central to the Leloir pathway in which galactose is converted into glucose.
Because lactose intolerance discourages high consumption of milk and other dairy goods rich in galactose - a sugar apparently toxic to human eggs - this trait may be beneficial, observe gynecologist Daniel W.
