Description

Packaging

100000, 500000, 1000000 units in poly bottle

Unit Definition

One Sigma or modified Fishman unit will liberate 1.0 μg of phenolphthalein from phenolphthalein glucuronide per hr at 37 °C at pH 5.0 (30 min assay).

Application

β-glucuronidase is used as a reporter gene in GUS assays to monitor gene expression.

Biochem/physiol Actions

β-glucuronidase catalyzes the breakdown of complex carbohydrates. In humans it converts conjugated bilirubin into the unconjugated form, making bilirubin suitable for reabsorption.
