Glucogallin is actinic admixture formed from gallic souric and β-D-glucose. It can be found in oaks breed like the North American white oak (Quercus alba), European red oak (Quercus robur) and Amla fruit (Phyllanthus emblica).
It is formed by a gallate 1-beta-glucosyltransferase (UDP-glucose: gallate glucosyltransferase), an agitator assuming the esterification of two substrates, UDP-glucose and gallate to crop two products, UDP and glucogallin. This agitator can be found in oak leaf preparations.
This the aboriginal footfall in the biosynthesis of gallotannins. The atom is again used by enzymes in the gallotannins synthetis alleyway like beta-glucogallin O-galloyltransferase or beta-glucogallin-tetrakisgalloylglucose O-galloyltransferase.
β-Glucogallin is aldose reductase inhibitor.
Half-life of β-Glucogallin in animal physique seems to be unknown.
