ⓘ Beta-glucosidase

Beta-glucosidase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of the glycosidic bonds to terminal non-reducing residues in beta-D-glucosides and oligosaccharides, with release of glucose.

Synonyms, derivatives, and related enzymes include gentiobiase, pectinase, emulsin, elaterase, Aryl-beta-glucosidase, beta-D-glucosidase, beta-glucoside glucohydrolase, arbutinase, amygdalinase, p-nitrophenyl-beta-glucosidase, primeverosidase, amygdalase, linamarase, salicilinase, and beta-1.6-glucosidase.

Cellulose is a polymer consisting of beta-1.4-linked glucosyl residues. The cellulases are endoglucanases, exoglucanases cellobiosidases, and beta-glucosidases are necessary for organisms some fungi, bacteria that can consume it. These enzymes represent a powerful tool for degradation of cell walls of plants against pathogens and other organisms that consume plant biomass.
