The mean arabinose concentration in the urine samples of males with autism was over five times that of the normal male controls and the median value six times that of the normal male controls.
Elevated protein-bound arabinose has been found in the serum proteins of schizophrenics (21) and in children with conduct disorders(22) and alteration of protein function by arabinose might be another mechanism by which arabinose might effect biochemical processes in autism and other diseases.
Arabinose may also be formed from the breakdown of the sugar glucose (23) and antioxidants such as glutathione may inhibit this conversion(24).

coli, the arabinose operon is responsible for the ability of the cell to use the sugar arabinose as a carbon source.
Arabinose is a five carbon sugar that is converted into D-xylulose-5-phosphate, an intermediate in the Pentose phosphate pat hway.
Arabinose is not as efficient a carbon source as glucose, so you might expect (and you would be correct) that the cAMP/CRP regulatory system is required for the positive regulation of the arabinose catabolic operon (ara operon).

Arabinose was removed from overnight cultures and cultures were diluted 1:50,000 into six different arabinose concentrations as described in the Experimental protocol.
However, in the absence of arabinose there was a range of responses, with some insertion mutants severely reduced in their ability to compete with the tester strain in liquid media (Table 1).
Support for this conclusion comes from the observation that the growth defect of these mutants in absence of arabinose is partially alleviated by culturing them in partially spent medium in which a wt strain was previously grown (Table 2).

This is because MC4100 is arabinose sensitive and its mutated araD gene produces a nonfunctional gene product which disrupts the arabinose pathway and leads to the build-up of ribulose 5-phosphate, a cell toxin.
Another possible pattern, white on arabinose, white on lactose and red on arabinose + lactose plates, suggests that insertion occurs on the A or B gene.
The arabinose pathway is disrupted, but on an arabinose+lactose plate, the arabinose +C gene product will turn on the promoter and allow the β-galactosidase to be produced.

 L-Arabinose
The fungal pathway for utilization of arabinose consists of five enzymes, and the dehydrogenase enzyme responsible for the reduction of arabinose to arabinitol has been characterized in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Thus, not only is there no evidence that arabinose is produced by any strain of yeast, the extant evidence favors the conclusion that any available evidence favors the conclusion that any available arabinose in their environment would be consumed by yeast.
