Glucosidases are glycoside hydrolase enzymes categorized under the EC number 3.2.1. The catalyze the cleavage of individual glucosyl residues from various glycoconjugates including alpha- or beta-linked polymers of glucose. glucosidases are targeted by alpha-glucosidase inhibitors to control diabetes mellitus type 2. Members include: Amylase (EC is a digestive enzyme in mammals.-Amylase (EC is a plant enzyme to break down starch.-Amylase (EC is a digestive enzyme.Cellulase (EC breaks down cellulose from plant material.Acid glucosidase (EC is associated with Glycogen storage disease type II.Lactase (EC one member of the -galactosidase family, breaks down milk sugars, and its absence in adulthood causes lactose intolerance.Pullulanase (EC has been used as a detergent.
