α-Glucosidase (yeast maltase)

EC 3.2.1.20
CAZy Family: GH13
CAS: 9001-42-7

Synonyms:
alpha-glucosidase; alpha-D-glucoside glucohydrolase

Form:
In 3.2 M ammonium sulphate.

Stability: 
> 4 years at 4oC.

Specific activity:
~ 120 U/mg (40oC, pH 6.8 on pNP-α-Glucosidase).

Unit definition:
One Unit of α-glucosidase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to produce one μmole of p-nitrophenol from pNP-α-Glucosidase (10 mM) in sodium phosphate buffer (100 mM), pH 6.8 at 40oC.

Specificity:
Hydrolysis of terminal, non-reducing (1,4)-linked α-D-glucose residues with release of D-glucose.

Applications:
Applications in carbohydrate research and in the food and feeds, brewing and biofuels industries.

Measurement of the distribution of non‐structural carbohydrate composition in onion populations by a high‐throughput microplate enzymatic assay.
