• Octyl
  • Octyl glucoside (n-octyl-β-D-glucoside) is a nonionic surfactant frequently used to solubilise integral membrane proteins for studies in biochemistry. (wikipedia.org)
  • Octyl glucoside has become one of the most important detergents for purification of membrane proteins because it generally does not denature the protein and can readily be removed from final protein extracts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Octyl glucoside has been proposed as a conditioning agent to prevent microbial colonization of contact lenses, due to its ability to lower the hydrophobicity of contact lenses and prevent adhesion of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (wikipedia.org)

  • enzymology
  • In enzymology, a glucoside 3-dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.99.13) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction sucrose + acceptor ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } 3-dehydro-alpha-D-glucosyl-beta-D-fructofuranoside + reduced acceptor Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are sucrose and acceptor, whereas its two products are 3-dehydro-alpha-D-glucosyl-beta-D-fructofuranoside and reduced acceptor.

  • include
  • A group may also be constructed to include the cyanogenic glucosides, i.e. those containing prussic acid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other names in common use include D-glucoside 3-dehydrogenase, D-aldohexopyranoside dehydrogenase, D-aldohexoside:cytochrome c oxidoreductase, D-glucoside 3-dehydrogenase, hexopyranoside-cytochrome c oxidoreductase, and D-aldohexoside:(acceptor) 3-oxidoreductase. (wikipedia.org)
