Related to glucosidase: glucosidase inhibitors
an enzyme of the hydrolase class that splits glucoside, occurring as α-, β-, and α-1,3-glucosidase; α-glucosidase (maltase) occurs in intestinal juice, and β-glucosidase (cellobiase) in the kidney, liver, and intestinal mucosa.
glucosidase/glu·co·si·dase/ (gloo-ko´sĭ-dās) any of a group of enzymes of the hydrolase class that hydrolyze glucose residues from glucosides; they are specific for α- or β- configurations as well as for particular substrate configurations, e.g., maltase.
Any of various enzymes that catalyze glucoside hydrolysis.
glucosidasean ENZYME catalysing the removal of single GLUCOSE residues from DISACCHARIDES and OLIGOSACCHARIDES.
an enzyme of the hydrolase class that cleaves the glucosidic bond between two glucose molecules, occurring as α-, β- and α-1,3-glucosidase; α-glucosidase (maltase) occurs in intestinal juice, and β-glucosidase (cellobiase) in the kidney, liver and intestinal mucosa.
