Description

General description

α-Galactosidase from green coffee beans is encoded by the GLA gene.

Application

α-Galactosidase from green coffee beans has been used to assess the specificity of anti- α-Galactosidase antibodies. It has also been used in inhibition assay to assess N-guanidino derivatives of 1,5-dideoxy-1,5-imino-d-xylitol activity.

Packaging

25 units in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

α-Galactosidase from green coffee beans cleaves the terminal α-galactose from the oligosaccharides. α-Galactosidase deficiency is associated with Fabry disease.

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole of p-nitrophenyl α-D-galactoside to p-nitrophenol and D-galactose per min at pH 6.5 at 25 °C.

Physical form

Suspension in 3.2 M (NH4)2SO4 solution, pH 6.0, containing BSA

Ammonium Sulfate Suspensions - Technical Note

Note that for an ammonium sulfate suspension, most of the enzyme will be in solid form. It is likely that only negligible amounts of enzyme will be in the ammonium sulfate solution.
