D(+)-Trehalose dihydrate

Trehalose Dihydrate is an osmolyte, a chemical chaperone. It contains many properties that allow it to stabilize partially unfolded protein molecules and inhibit protein aggregation. It include a low chemical reactivity, high glass transition temperature, existence of numerous polymorphs, nonreducing nature, and high affinity for water molecules. Additionally, Trehalose has been noted to bind to expanded polyglutamines and stabilize partially unfolded polyglutamine-containing proteins.

Trehalose, Dihydrate, is an inducer of autophagy, it protect cells against numerous environmental stresses. It is seldom used as a direct replacement for conventional sweeteners. Use as a cryoprotectant in a variety of cell freezing media.
