Chemical Information
FooDB NameN-Acetylglucosamine
DescriptionMonomer of Chitinand is also in the exopolysaccharide from blue-green alga Cyanospira capsulata (CCD) N-Acetylglucosamine (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, or GlcNAc, or NAG) is a monosaccharide derivative of glucose. It is part of a biopolymer in the bacterial cell wall, built from alternating units of GlcNAc and N-acetylmuramic acid (MurNAc), cross-linked with oligopeptides at the lactic acid residue of MurNAc. GlcNAc is the monomeric unit of the polymer chitin, which forms the outer coverings of insects and crustaceans. N-Acetylglucosamine is found in peach.
