Enzyme label for enzyme immunoassay
|Application Notes||β-Galactosidase is useful for the structural investigation of carbohydrate, the determination of lactose (foodstuff analysis) and as an enzyme label for enzyme immunoassay.|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||β-galactosidase cleaves lactose into its monosaccharide components, glucose and galactose. It also catalyses the transglycosylation of glucose into allolactose, the inducer of β-galactosidase, in a feedback loop.|
|Isoelectric Point||4.61 (Lit.)|
|Applications||Enzyme label for enzyme immunoassay|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Eyeshields, Gloves, Respirator filter|
|Physical Appearance||White Powder|
|Product Families Description||β-Galactosidase|
|Specific Activity||≥300 u/mg solid|
|Specificity||Substrate Specificity: The enzyme specifically hydrolyzes β-D-galactosyl linkage|
|Storage and Handling||Store at -0 °C.|
|Unit Definition||One unit catalyzes the hydrolysis of 1 μmole of o-nitrophenyl-β-D-galactopyranoside per minute at 25 °C, pH 7.5.|
|Usage Statement||Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.|
