Version 2.77


Beta-galactosidase is a hydrolase enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of beta-galactosides into monosaccharides. Substrates of different beta-galactosidases include ganglioside GM1, lactosylceramides, lactose, and various glycoproteins. Alternate or nicknames are beta-gal or b-gal. Lactase is often confused as an alternate name for Beta-galactosidase, but it is actually simply a sub-class of Beta-galactosidase.
