Fructosyl-lysine - CAS 21291-40-7
Fructosyl-lysine(CAT: I015526) is a chemical compound formed by the reaction between the amino acid lysine and fructose. This compound is a type of advanced glycation end product (AGE) that forms in the body as a result of the Maillard reaction, a non-enzymatic reaction between reducing sugars like fructose and amino acids like lysine. Fructosyl-lysine is implicated in the aging process and the development of various age-related diseases, particularly in the context of diabetes and hyperglycemia.
