β-Glucosidase Assay Kit

Cat.No.: Kit-2522
Product Overview: β-GLUCOSIDASE is a glucosidase enzyme which acts upon β1->4 bonds linking two glucose or glucose-substituted molecules (i.e., the disaccharide cellobiose). β-Glucosidases are required by organisms (some fungi, bacteria, termites) for consumption of cellulose. Lysozyme is also a β-glucosidase and is present in tears to prevent bacterial infection of the eye. In humans, lower activity of a β-glucosidase isoform (lysosomal gluco-cerebrosidase) has been related to Gaucher’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Simple, direct and automation-ready procedures for measuring β-glucosidase activity are becoming popular in Research and Drug Discovery. β-Glucosidase Assay Kit is designed to measure β-glucosidase activity directly in biological samples without pretreatment. The improved method utilizes p-nitrophenyl-β-D-glucopyranoside that is hydrolyzed specifically by β-glucosidase into a yellow colored product (maximal absorbance at 405nm). The rate of the reaction is directly proportional to the enzyme activity.
