Enzymes are protein-biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions in living organisms. Enzymes are fundamental to all biological processes. Typically enzymes bind a substrate in a well confined binding pocket which stabilizes the intermediate state that the substrate has to assume during its conversion into the product of the enzymatic reaction. Enzymes come in all shapes and forms and catalyze all biological processes, including protein synthesis and degradation, metabolic reactions, DNA synthesis and degradation, etc. Enzymes are prime drug targets in the pharmaceutical industry, because enzymes are frequently overactive and are relatively easy targets for small molecule inhibitor discovery.

Meteoric Life Sciences offers several enzymes for Pharmaceutical application

Beta Glucanase

Cell wall modification (beta-glucan breakdown) is regarded as a key step in extract development during malting and brewing. It has been suggested that the rate of modification, of the grains of a barley sample, is principally determined by their contents of cell wall beta-glucan and their potential to synthesise beta-glucanase. Therefore, malt samples, which contain low beta-glucan levels and high beta-glucanase activities, are considered suitable for brewing.

Beta Glucanase digests fiber. It helps in digestive problems such as malabsorption. It is very important enzyme because the human body cannot produce it on its own. Beta Glucanase helps in the breakdown of plant walls (cellulose), and increases the overall efficiency of binding excess cholesterol and toxins in the intestines. Beta Glucanase is used for commercial food processing in coffee; it performs hydrolysis of cellulose during drying of beans. It is also used in textile industry as a fading agent.
