Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

α-glucosidase hydrolyzes carbohydrates by acting on 1,4-α linkages. Inhibition of α-glucosidase is a prominent target in the management of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Definición de unidad

One unit will liberate 1.0 μmole of D-glucose from p-nitrophenyl α-D-glucoside per min at pH 6.8 at 37 °C.

Forma física

Lyophilized powder containing potassium phosphate buffer salt

Nota de análisis

Activity using maltose as substrate at pH 6.0 at 25 deg C is ~2X greater than that obtained using p-nitrophenyl-α-D-glucoside as substrate at pH 6.8 at 37 °C.
