β-Glucuronidase from Escherichia coli

Preweighed vials of G7646, Type VII-A

Synonym: β-D-Glucuronide glucuronosohydrolase

Purchase

Description

Quality

Contains added phosphate buffer: when reconstituted with 10 mL water, solution will contain approx. 4 mM phosphate buffer, pH 6.8.

Unit Definition

One Sigma or modified Fishman unit will liberate 1.0 μg of phenolphthalein from phenolphthalein glucuronide per hr at 37 °C at the pH 6.8 (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.
