Description

Application

Amyloglucosidase from Aspergillus niger is used to hydrolyze α-D-glucosides. It may be used in the brewing of beer and in the production of bread and juices. Amyloglucosidase, from Sigma, has been used to hydrolyze glycogen into glucose monomers in order to study lipid accumulation in skeletal muscle .

Biochem/physiol Actions

Amyloglucosidase from Aspergillus niger is capable of hydrolyzing the α-D-(1-4), the α-D-(1-6), and the α-D-(1-3) glucosidic bonds of oligosaccharides .

Unit Definition

One unit will liberate 1.0 mg of glucose from starch in 3 min at pH 4.5 at 55 °C.

Physical form

Suspension in 3.2 M (NH4)2SO4 solution, pH approx. 6.0
