D-Arabinose is a five-carbon reducing sugar. It is a constituent of arabinogalactans that make up the cell wall of mycobacteria. It is also a substrate for D-erythroascorbic acid biosynthesis in yeast. D-arabinose is converted to D-ribulose by an arabinose isomerase enzyme, which can then be phosphorylated and enter the pentose phosphate pathway. As opposed to most other sugars, D-arabinose, featured here, is actually less commonly found in nature than L-arabinose.
