Glucose oxidase from Aspergillus niger, 220 U/mg
This is a lyphophylize formulation of Glucose oxidase
Mw 160 000 • CAS 9001-37-0
Glucose oxidase or GOx catalyzes the oxidation of β-D-glucose into D-glucono-1,5-lactone, which then hydrolyzes to gluconic acid. It is used to determine free glucose in body fluids (diagnostics), in vegetal raw material, and in the food industry. Additionally it has applications in biotechnologies, typically enzyme assays for biochemistry including biosensors in nanotechnologies.
- Activty: 220U/mg protein
- Extraneous activities: Amylase, saccharase and maltase less than 0.05 %;
- GOx/catalase min. 2000
Inhibitors: p-chloromercuribenzoate, heavy metal ions, hydroxylamine, hydrazine, sodium bisulphite.
Unit definition: 1 U catalyzes the oxidation of 1 µmole glucose to glucuronic acid per minute at 25 °C, pH 7 coupled with peroxidase and o-dianisidine (1)
