E.g. d-glucosamine or 2-aminodeoxy-d-glucopyranose. amino sugars, cell proliferation and the auto immune theory A widely held theory of the cause of many diseases is from the formation of antibodies to the body’s own tissues, which then attack those tissues and cause Size: KB. In organic chemistry, an amino sugar (or more technically a 2-aminodeoxysugar) is a sugar molecule in which a hydroxyl group has been replaced with an amine than 60 amino sugars are known, with one of the most abundant being N-Acetyl-d-glucosamine, which is the main component of chitin.. Derivatives of amine containing sugars, such as N . Amino sugar A sugar in which one or more nonglycosidic hydroxyl groups is replaced by an amino or substituted amino group. The most abundant example is d -glucosamine (2-aminodeoxy- d -glucose) [see illustration]. Structural formula of D -glucosamine (α-pyranose ring form) A linear polymer of N-acetyl- d -glucosamine is widely distributed as chitin.

Amino sugars (i.e., sugars in which one or two hydroxyl groups are replaced with an amino group, ―NH 2) occur as components of glycolipids and in the chitin of arthropods.

The most abundant amino sugar is one of the oldest and most abundant organic compounds on Earth. More than 60 amino sugars are known, many of them having been isolated and identified only recently as .
