Catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucosides. Emulsin originally was the term applied to the extract of sweet almonds. It remains as the historical prototype of -glucosidase. Many other sources of the enzyme have been described.
Catalog #G3059-01
Emulsin also shows significant D-galactosidase activity and there is some question as to whether or not it is one enzyme with two activities, because non-parallel response to inhibitors points to two separate enzymes. D-mannosidase has also been reported in almond emulsin.
