Glusulase

(Science: chemical) Consists of beta-glucuronidase and sulfatase; from snails

Available from PerkinElmer part number NEE154 according to following specifications:

glusulase is a preparation of the intestinal juice of the snail helix pomatia. It is a deep brown, slightly viscous (gel-free) liquid. It contains a mixture of enzymes including β-glucuronidase, sulfatase, and a cellulase. The activities of these enzymes have proven particularly useful for breaking open yeast cell walls and for hydrolysis of glucuronides and sulfates such as occur in conjugated steroids.

Concentration: Glucuronidase:90,000Units/mL and Sulfatase:19,000Units/mL
