This experiment was designed to synthesize 18 kinds of polyhydroxybenzophenones by using Friedel-Crafts reaction, and to measure the inhibitory activity on α-glucosidase with p-nitrophenyl-β-D-galactopyranoside (PNPG) as a substrate. Here, acarbose (IC(50)  = 1674.75 µmol L(-1) ) was used as the reference...

Trp-999 is a key residue for the action of beta-galactosidases (Escherichia coli). Several site specific substitutions (Phe, Gly, Tyr, Leu) for Trp-999 were made. Each substitution caused greatly decreased affinities for substrates and inhibitors that bind in the "shallow" mode...

The lactose permease (LacY) catalyzes galactoside/H(+) symport via an alternating access mechanism in which sugar- and H(+)-binding sites in the middle of the molecule are alternatively exposed to either side of the membrane by opening and closing of inward- and...

Enzymes are often quantified by measuring their biological activity. Capillary electrophoresis is gaining its position in this field due to the ongoing trend to miniaturize biochemical assays. The aim of this work was to compare pre-capillary (off-line) and in-capillary electrophoresis...

alpha-Galactosidase (alpha-D-galactoside galactohydrolase, EC from watermelon was covalently immobilized on chitin. The immobilized alpha-galactosidase exhibited an activity of 0.61 U per g of carrier and an activity yield of 67%. The properties of free and immobilized alpha-galactosidase were also...
