MetaCyc Compound Class: maltose

Synonyms: α-D-glucopyranose-(1→4)-D-glucopyranose, maltose

Superclasses: all carbohydrates a carbohydrate a glycan an oligosaccharide a disaccharide
all carbohydrates a carbohydrate a glycan an oligosaccharide a malto-oligosaccharide a linear malto-oligosaccharide

Summary:
Maltose is composed of two glucose molecules linked by an α 1,4-glycosidic linkage. Maltose is produced by the hydrolysis of starch and similar compounds, and can be hydrolyzed to glucose by the enzyme maltase.

Chemical Formula: C12H22O11

Instances:
α-maltose ,
β-maltose
