    Glucose Oxidase and Its Various Uses Aaron Truong Since glucose oxidase has an end product called hydrogen peroxide‚ which is a harmful substance to bacteria‚ it can be used to fight bacteria‚ or sterilize objects (can have various uses such as in hand sanitizers‚ toothpaste‚ soap‚ etc)‚ not just biosensors. Another key part in the reaction would be C6H12O6‚ or glucose. Glucose oxidase can be applied to diabetics as mentioned earlier‚ as biosensors work by "keeping track of the

    complex carbohydrates include vegetables‚ whole grains‚ peas‚ pasta‚ potatoes and beans. Carbohydrates are the main source of glucose‚ which is a major fuel for all of the body’s cells and the only source of energy for the brain and red cells. Except for fiber‚ which cannot be digested‚ both simple and complex carbohydrates are converted into glucose. The glucose is then either used directly to provide energy for the body‚ or stored in the liver for future use. When a person consumes more

    evolved than MgSO₄. In the second set-up‚ six Smith fermentation tubes were used each containing different 15mL solution (starch‚ lactose‚ sucrose‚ glucose‚ fructose or distilled H₂O). the tubes were then added with 15 mL distilled H2O and 15 mL 10% yeast suspension. Here‚ results show that fructose had the highest rate of respiration followed by glucose‚ sucrose‚ lactose‚ starch and H₂O. Thus‚ simpler substrate would mean higher rate of respiration.
