-Glucuronidase, Recombinant (D-Glucuronide glucuronosohydrolase, EC 188.8.131.52)
|Molecular Biology||Storage: -20°CShipping: Blue Ice|
Beta-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 beta-glucuronides and also the transfer of glucuronly radicals to acceptor alcohols. beta-Glucuronidase is a structural protein of the endoplasmic reticulum and its occurance in the lysozomes is due to changes in the endoplasmic reticulum.
Beta-Glucuronidase catalyzes the following reaction:
beta-Glucuronidase beta-D-Glucuronide + H2O ---> Alcohol + D-Glucuronate
b-D-glucuronide + H2O --> D-glucuronate + ROH (R: alkyl group)
