Galactose dehydrogenase (soil prokaryote) 

CAS: 9028-54-0

D-galactose 1-dehydrogenase; D-galactose:NAD+ 1-oxidoreductase

In 3.2 M ammonium sulphate.

Minimum 1 year at 4oC. Check vial for details.

Specific activity:
~ 280 U/mg (25oC, pH 8.6 on D-galactose).

Unit definition:
One unit of galactose dehydrogenase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to convert one µmole of D-galactose to D-galactanate per minute in the presence of NAD+ in Tris-HCl buffer (93 mM), pH 8.6 at 25oC.

Catalyses the reaction:
D-galactose + NAD+ = D-galactono-1,4-lactone + NADH + H+

Also acts on L-arabinose but more slowly.

Applications for the measurement of D-galactose (and L-arabinose) in carbohydrate research and in the food, fermentation, wine, beverage and dairy industries.

Assay for determination of free D-galactose and/or L-arabinose.
