β-Glucosidase is used in the synthesis of glucosides and fucosides with various potential applications in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and detergent industries, hydrolytic removal of aglycone moiety from flavonoid and isoflavonoid glycosides, flavor enhancement of fruit juices and wine, and biosynthesis of oligosaccharides.
β-Glucosidase is a glucosidase enzyme. It is an exocellulase with specificity for a variety of β-D-glycoside substrates.
β-glucosidase is involved in the hydrolysis of β-glycosidic bonds connecting carbohydrate residues in β-D-glycosides. They convert cellobiose and cellooligosaccharides produced by the endo and exoglucanases to glucose.
One unit is the amount of enzyme which liberates 1.0 µg of glucose per minute at 35 °C, pH 5.0.
