Maltase is an enzyme located in on the brush border of the small intestine that breaks down the. D-glucosidase, alpha-glucoside hydrolase, alpha-4-glucosidase, alpha-D-glucoside . This is in contrast to beta-glucosidase.
Alpha-glucosidase breaks down starch and disaccharides to glucose. Maltase, a similar enzyme that cleaves maltose, is nearly functionally. Maltase-glucoamylase, intestinal is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MGAM gene.
In most other mammals the lactase–phlorizin hydrolase is expressed from.
Enzyme kinetic experiments for IAP, lactase, maltase, SI, MGA, and APN were measured. Target hydrolase protein abundances in the apical membrane were . Actions of brush border membrane hydrolases. The lactase–phlorizin hydrolase complex is the only brush border enzyme able. Also present in the brush border is the α-glucosidase maltase-glucoamylase, . In humans, both the Nterminal catalytic domain (NtMGAM) and the C-terminal catalytic domain (CtMGAM) of small intestinal maltase glucoamylase (MGAM) are . All digestive enzymes belong to this hydrolase class.
Maltose hydrolysed into glucose through the action of the enzyme maltase. Read More
