α-glucosidase is used for the determination of α-amylase and the synthesis of various 1′-O-sucrose and 1-O-fructose esters. It was also used in the measurement of glycosidase inhibition.
For the determination of α-amylase and the synthesis of various 1′-O-sucrose and 1-O-fructose esters

Sold on basis of p-nitrophenyl α-D-glucoside units.
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.
Hydrolysis of terminal, non-reducing 1→4-linked D-glucose residues with release of D-glucose.
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.
Protein determined by biuret.
