Is glucose a disccharide?
Glucose is a monosaccharide.
For one, dextrose and glucose are both monomers, or to be specific, monosaccharides. Dextrose and glucose are essentially the same thing, except that dextrose is specifically D-glucose. There exists two stereoisomeric forms of glucose, being D-glucose and L-glucose. "D" refers to "right" and "L" refers to "left". Essentially stereoisomeric means that D-glucose and L-glucose are mirror images of each other. T The difference between L-glucose and R-glucose is that L-glucose cannot be metabolized during glycolysis…
Since you know what Glucose Oxidase is I'm assuming you know what enzymes are. If not, an enzyme is a protein that catalyzes chemical reactions. Glucose oxidase is the enzyme built specifically for Glucose. Glucose Oxidase binds to the six-carbon sugar Glucose and aids the organism in breaking it down into metabolites.
