mutarotase

al·dose 1-e·pim·er·ase

(al'dōs ep'i-mĕr-ās),
An enzyme catalyzing the reversible interconversion of α- and β-aldoses (for example, α- and β-d-glucose); also acts on l-arabinose, d-xylose, d-galactose, maltose, and lactose.

One of the first similar devices used different enzymes (invertase, [beta]-galactosidase, amyloglucosidase, mutarotase, and glucose oxidase) covalently immobilized on a cellulose membrane [25].

The reaction system contained 26.5 mM G6P, 1.8 mM EDTA, 2 mM NA[D.sup.+], 0.5 to U/mL mutarotase, 5 to 7 U/mL glucose dehydrogenase, and 100 mM imidazole-HCl.

Washington, July 10 (ANI): Knocking out a gene called fucose mutarotase (FucM) from female mice actually makes them masculine-they refuse to let males mount them, and attempt copulation with other female mice.
The HemoCue blood glucose analyzer is a bedside or near-patient analyzer with dedicated cuvettes; glucose dehydrogenase, mutarotase, and diaphorase act on the sample in connection with a color-generating reagent.

Interconversion between the anomers may occur freely (albeit slowly) or via the catalytic activity of glucose mutarotases. Most enzymes preferentially bind either [alpha] or [beta] form, but a small subset is able to utilize both anomers as the situation demands [1].
