Disease relevance of beta-galactosidase


High impact information on beta-galactosidase


Biological context of beta-galactosidase


Anatomical context of beta-galactosidase


Associations of beta-galactosidase with chemical compounds

  • The starvation-induced degradation of the beta-galactosidase reporter protein is quantitatively similar to that of two endogenous muscle proteins, arginine kinase and adenylate kinase [17].
  • We observed that beta-glucosidase, hyaluronidase, beta-galactosidase, trypsin, protease, lipase, phospholipase C, soybean agglutinin, wheat germ agglutinin, and spermidine exerted inhibitory actions on those movements, which may be guided by the chemosensory function of this nematode [18].

Other interactions of beta-galactosidase


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of beta-galactosidase

  • In contrast, a two-fold increase in beta-galactosidase activity was seen in the presence of surface-reactive IgG (SR-IgG) which recognised surface components of between 6 and 40 kDa in western blot [20].
