Inhibition of α-glucosidase by vitamin D3 and the effect of vitamins B1 and B2.


α-Glucosidase is a vital enzyme in carbohydrate metabolism. Over-expression of this enzyme is correlated with hyperglycemia. The inhibitory effect of vitamin D3 on α-glucosidase as well as its mechanism of action was investigated in this work. The results showed that vitamin D3 exhibited stronger inhibition on α-glucosidase than acarbose with the IC50 value… (More)
