Abstract

Metabolites in the lactose synthesis pathway were measured in human milk during established lactation. The mean concentrations (range) were: lactose, 198 mM (175-233); glucose, 1.5 mM (0.1-2.4); glucose 6-phosphate, 11-mu-M (4-23); glucose 1-phosphate, 2.7-mu-M (1.6-6.8); UDP-glucose, 2.7-mu-M (0.6-6.0); UDP-galactose, 0.7-mu-M (
