Related to glucose oxidase: glucose oxidase method

glu·cose ox·i·dase

an antibacterial flavoprotein enzyme, obtained from Penicillum notatum and other fungi, which is antibacterial only in the presence of glucose and oxygen, its effect being due to the oxidation of d-glucose to d-glucono-δ-lactone, with the coconversion of O2 to H2O2; used in the preservation of food and in assays for glucose levels.

Increase in %age yield of calcium gluconate at 125 g/l glucose concentration might be due to fact that at this concentration, glucose oxidase activity in Aspergillusniger was maximum which resulted in the high yield of calcium gluconate.
