introduction

N-Acetylglucosamine (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, GlcNAc, or NAG) is a glucose monosaccharide derivative. It is an amide formed by the reaction of glucosamine and acetic acid. It has the chemical formula C8H15NO6, a molar mass of 221.21 g/mol, and is important in a variety of biological processes.

It is a bacterial cell wall biopolymer composed of alternating units of GlcNAc and N-acetylmuramic acid (MurNAc), which is cross-linked with oligopeptides at the lactic acid residue of MurNAc. This layered structure is known as peptidoglycan (formerly murein).

GlcNAc is the monomeric unit of the polymer chitin, which is found on the exterior surfaces of insects and crustaceans. It is the primary component of fungal cell walls, mollusk radulas, and cephalopod beaks.

Hyaluronan is formed when it is polymerized with glucuronic acid.
