The compound works in the gut by blocking the action of carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes
that break down carbs in foods during digestion.
Laboratory experiments indicate a well documented isolation, identification and purification of extra-cellular cuticle hydrolyzing enzymes
from entomopathogenic fungi and their induction in cultures containing cuticle as substrates has been studied .
The genera Neocallimastix, Orpinomyces and Piromyces are members of Family Neocallimastigaceae and they are very close in genetic relation and the genes encoding glucose hydrolyzing enzymes
are highly homologous among anaerobic fungi (Harhangi et al.
Lawsuit focused on technology related to granular starch hydrolyzing enzymes
for the ethanol industry~
The first product from its line of STARGEN(TM) granular starch hydrolyzing enzymes
was introduced this week at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Kansas City, MO.
More recently, the company announced its alliance with Broin, the largest privately held ethanol producer in the US, to further develop technology used to create raw starch hydrolyzing enzymes
for Broin's BPX[TM] process, a patent-pending method that converts starch to sugar, which then ferments to ethanol without heat.
Our previous collaboration to create raw starch hydrolyzing enzymes
for our BPX[TM] process was highly successful.
The resulting polysaccharide-a new class of drugs called carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzyme
inhibitors (CHEI)-is taken before meals, working in the gastrointestinal tract to "disable" the carbs.
