b-Glucuronidase has been found in tissue extracts of mammals and other vertebrates, digestive juices of snails, molluscs, locusts, bacteria and plants. The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of b-glucuronides and also the transfer of glucuronly radicals to acceptor alcohols. b-Glucuronidase is a structural protein of the endoplasmic reticulum. Its occurence in the lysozomes is due to changes in the endoplasmic reticulum.
Catalog #G3060-04
