Actions: (1) Phosphoryliodide can combine with phosphatidylcholinesterase to form a complex of phosphatidylcholinesterase and phosphatidylcholine iodide. The latter can be further cleaved into phosphatidylcholine iodide to free the cholinesterase and restore its activity. 2) Phosphodium iodide can also bind with free organic phosphate esters in vivo, and ...

I'll try to explain this to you, but you should really look it up here: https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/beta-Levulose#section=3D-Conformer&fullscreen=true This is the structure of beta-D-fructofuranose, as a 3D conformer. On paper, or as a 2D figure, we cannot visualize the -OH groups at positions 3 and 4. They appear to be inside/outside ...
