N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine

Introduction

N-Acetylglucosamine (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, or GlcNAc, or NAG) is a monosaccharide and a derivative of glucose. It is an amide

between glucosamine and acetic acid. It has a molecular formula of C8H15NO6, a molar mass of 221.21 g/mol, and it is significant

in several biological systems.It is part of a biopolymer in the bacterial cell wall, which is built from alternating units of GlcNAc

and N-acetylmuramic acid (MurNAc), cross-linked with oligopeptides at the lactic acid residue of MurNAc. This layered structure

is called peptidoglycan (formerly called murein).GlcNAc is the monomeric unit of the polymer chitin, which forms the outer

coverings of insects and crustaceans. It is the main component of the radulas of mollusks, the beaks of cephalopods, and a

major component of the cell walls of most fungi.
