2-Deoxy-D-galactose is a deoxy hexose that inhibits synthesis of glycoproteins in Influenza virus, such as hemagglutinin and neuraminidase, by blocking glycosylation. 2-Deoxy-D-galactose also inhibits the glycosylation of mammalian proteins involved in neurotransmitter release and synaptogenesis in the hippocampus. It has been used for isolating galactose permease mutants of Salmonella typhimurium and in the inhibition of glycolysis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It has also been used to isolate and elucidate the activity of a system for galactose uptake into E. coli.
