This rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody was generated against a 30-kDa peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of Anopheles gambiae Alpha Glucosidase and recognizes A. gambiae Alpha Glucosidase.
Alpha-glucosidase is a glucosidase located on the brush border of the small intestine that acts upon 1,4-alpha bonds. The role of alpha-glucosidase breaks down starch and disaccharides to glucose. Maltase, a similar enzyme that cleaves maltose, is nearly functionally equivalent. Deficiences in alpha glucosidase are associated with Pompe Disease and Diabetes.
