Acarbose: α-Glucosidase Inhibitor

Acarbose, a complex oligosaccharide, is obtained from fermentation processes of a microorganism, Actinoplanes utahensis. Acarbose acts by competitive and reversible inhibition of intestinal α-glucosidases and α-amylase which are enzymes responsible for the metabolite of complex carbohydrates into absorbable monosaccharide units. This action delays the digestion of ingested carbohydrates, thereby resulting in a smaller rise in blood glucose concentration following meals. In contrast to sulfonylureas, acarbose does not enhance insulin secretion. Acarbose is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. (The product is for research purpose only.)
