Acarbose from Actinoplanes sp. ca. 100 FIP-AIU/mg

contact dried, amorph

(O-4,6-(dideoxy-4-[[[1S-(1α, 4α, 5β, 6α)]-4,5,6-trihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)-2-cyclohexene-1-yl]amino]-α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-D-Glucose)


C25H43O18N Mr 645.6 CAS [56180-94-0]


Ca. 100 FIP-AIU/mg (FIP-α-amylase inhibitor unit) using porcine pancreatic α-amylase. This highly purified Acarbose, a pseudotetrasaccharide, inhibits α-amylases [EC], α-glucosidases [EC], saccharases [EC]. Used e.g. in enzymatic conversions and assays where α-amylases, α-glucosidases or saccharases interfere with the reaction.
