Lactose is a galactoside disaccharide linked to glucose by the [beta]-(1,4) glycosidic linkage, and has a great importantce as the main calorie source of all mammals except sea lion.
TD139, a highly potent, specific inhibitor of the galactoside binding pocket of galectin-3, has been formulated for inhalation to enable direct targeting the fibrotic tissue in the lungs, while minimising systemic exposure.

The novel cardiac biomarker galectin-3 (Gal-3) is a beta galactoside binding lectin involved in fibrogenesis and inflammatory response in the failing heart.
In a similar way, Sia covers penultimate LacNAc (Gal[beta]1-4GlcNAc) that is recognized by a [beta] galactoside recognition lectin, it is known as galectin.
It was positive for glucose, sorbitol, rhamnose, L-arabinose, melibiose, lysine, ornithine, citrate, galactoside, and cellobiose tests and negative for sucrose, raffinose, inositol, adonitol, urea, hydrogen sulfide, indole, arginine, tryptophan deaminase, aesculin, acetoin, malonate, tartrate, acetamide, cetrimide, and Voges-Proskauer tests.
In addition, we have also shown that ESAH, rich in phenolic compounds, such as derivatives of caffeic acid and glycosylated flavonoids (quercetin glucoside and galactoside), does not produce any toxic effects after acute treatment [5].
This study examined the effects of trifolin, which is a type of flavonoid that is conjugated to galactoside (Fig.
It was for the first time in 1898 that skin lesions of Fabry's was reported by Johann Fabry and William Anderson from Germany and England respectively.5,6 In 1947, Pompen et al further described it to be a generalized storage disorder because of abnormal vacuoles found in virtually all cells of the affected individuals.7 In1963, the material that accumulates in the cells of Fabry's patients was identified as neutral glycosphingolipid.8 In 1967, Brady et al found that the disease is caused by deficiency of an enzyme galactosidase, required for glycosphingolipid metabolism.9 In 1970, Kint reported the anomeric configuration of terminal galactoside linkage to be alpha.10 In the late 1980, the full length cDNA was isolated and the entire gene sequence of a-galactosidase was derermined.11,12
jejuni produce serum antibodies that cross-react with CT and LT (11-13); (v) culture filtrates reacted in GM1 ganglioside ELISA with antiserum to CT or LT (14,15); and (vi) galactoside, ganglioside or CT antibody affinity purified material from culture filtrates caused morphological alteration and raised cAMP levels in sensitive cells or reacted in GM1 ganglioside ELISA (15-17).
MCP is rich in galactoside residues, which some believe give it an affinity for certain types of cancer cells.
For instance, microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of their amino acids into carcinogens, thawing frozen fruits converted their glucoside and galactoside containing fractions into carcinogenic substances, and carcinogenic free radicals were formed in microwaved plants, especially root vegetables.
