Naturevolume 187pages10281029 (1960) | Download Citation



IN a recent report concerning the phosphate esters synthesized by skin maintained on various substrates in vitro1 we described the formation of two phosphate esters from 2-deoxy-D-glucose which were not detected with skin maintained on D-glucose. One of these was identified as 2-deoxy-D-glucose-6-phosphate; this communication describes the identification of the second ester.
