glucosidase

 [gloo-ko´sĭ-dās]
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

(glo͞o-kō′sĭ-dās′, -dāz′)
n.
Any of various enzymes that catalyze glucoside hydrolysis.

glucosidase
