Description

Application

β-glucuronidase was used in enzymic hydrolysis of tissue homogenates for liquid chromatography-electrospray ion trap mass spectrometry (LC/MSn) analysis, to study the structures of degradation products of baicalin.

Packaging

1000000 units in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

β-glucuronidase (β-GIc) is an exoglycosidase that catalyzes the breakdown of complex carbohydrates. In humans it converts conjugated bilirubin into the unconjugated form, making bilirubin suitable for reabsorption.

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 5.0 (30 min assay).

One unit of sulfatase will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole p-nitrocatechol sulfate per hr at pH 5.0 at 37 °C.

Other Notes

Used for the hydrolysis of glucuronide conjugates in urinary metabolite analysis
