Ox Bile Extract
Bile is a secretion of liver, stored in the gall bladder until needed. Bile has a major role to play in fat digestion and absorption. The active constituents of bile are the bile salts, which are either glycine or taurine conjugates of polyhydroxy steroidal acid. Principal bile acids of mammals are the hydroxyl derivatives of 5 - beta-cholan-24 oic - acid. Ox-bile is the most important commercial source of these acids and contains primarily Cholic acid with less amount of deoxycholic acid.
Pancreatin is a digestive enzyme that is used to supplement loss of or low levels of digestive enzymes, and is often used in people with cystic fibrosis. It has been claimed to help with food allergies, celiac disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, and weight loss. Pancreatin is also known as pancreatic acid.
Papain is naturally occurring enzyme, obtained from latex of fruit of PAPAYA (Carica papaya Latex). The enzyme Papain is obtained by drying papaya latex by suitable method viz; sun drying, tray drying, spray drying etc. spray drying gives a fine powder, which dissolves easily in water to provide a solution of high proteolytic activity.
Pectinase is a general term for enzymes that break down pectin, a polysaccharide substrate that is found in the cell walls of plants. One of the must studied and widely used commercial pectinases is polygalacturonase. It is useful because pectin is the jelly-like matrix which helps cement plant cells together and in which other cell wall components, such as cellulose fibrils, are embedded. Therefore pectinase enzymes are commonly used in processes involving the degradation of plant materials, such as speeding up the extraction of fruit juice from fruit, including apples. Pectinases have also been used in wine production since the 1960s.
Pepsin is one of the principal protein degrading or proteolytic enzymes in the digestive system. During the process of digestion, Pepsin acts on the complex dietary protein and breaks up into peptides and amino acids which can be readily absorbed by the intestinal lining.
Peroxidases are a group of enzymes that catalyze oxidation-reduction reactions. As such, they are classified as oxidoreductases. Toxic molecules such as superoxide and hydroxide radicals can be found in cells due to the presence of oxygen. These are byproducts of aerobic respiration. They are eliminated by a number of enzymes present inside the cell. Superoxide, for example, is destroyed by superoxide dismutase. The degradation, however, produces more hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which is, in turn, destroyed by peroxidase. Peroxidases reduce H2O2 to water while oxidizing a variety of substrates. Thus, peroxidases are oxidoreductases which use H2O2 as electron acceptor for catalyzing different oxidative reactions.
Large amount of research show that phytate or phytic acid in monogastric animal's feeds has a strong anti-nutrition effect the reason being: Monogastric animals lack phytate degrading enzyme in their digestive tract so they are unable to utilize the phosphorus of phytate
Proteases (Proteinases, Peptidases or Proteolytic enzymes) are enzymes that break peptide bonds between amino acids of proteins. The process is called proteolytic cleavage, a common mechanism of activation or inactivation of enzymes especially involved in blood coagulation or digestion. They use a molecule of water for this and are thus classified as hydrolases.
Pullulanase is a specific kind of glucanase, an amylolytic exoenzyme, that degrades pullulan. It is produced as an extracellular, cell surface-anchored lipoprotein by Gram-negative bacteria of the genus Klebsiella. Type I pullulanases specifically attack a-1,6 linkages, while type II pullulanases are also able to hydrolyse a-1,4 linkages. It is also produced by some other bacteria and archaea. Pullanase is used as a detergent in biotechnology.
Serratiopeptidase is derived from bacteria belonging to the genus Serratia. The controlled fermentation of Serratia sp. secretes this enzyme in the highly selective medium. The recovery process involves various types of filtration, concentration and steps to make enzyme useful for pharmaceutical applications and finally dried to fine free flowing powder form.
Sucrase is a yeast-derived enzyme. Sucrase splits sucrose into glucose and fructose (invert syrup) and can be applied for any inversion of sucrose especially liquefied cherry centers, creams, mints, truffles, marshmallow, invert syrup and other fondants. Sucrase is used to improve shelf life of confections. It is available in single, double and triple strengths and is packaged in one, ten and 44 pound containers for ease of use, storage and cost efficiency.
Trypsin Chymotrypsin Mix
Trypsin Chymotrypsin Mix is a unique anti - inflammatory product manufactured by Advanced Enzyme Technologies. Trypsin Chymotrypsin Mix is a proteolytic enzyme obtained by controlled proteolysis of zymogens form in the frozen glands. Successive conc. and purification steps give Trypsin Chymotrypsin Mix best suitable for pharmaceutical applications.
Xylanase produced by submerged fermentation of Trichoderma reesei var.It has cellulase side activity. This is classified by Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NC-IUBMB) in consultation with the IUPAC-IUBMB joint Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature (JCBN)
