Glucose oxidase is widely used for the determination of free glucose in body fluids (medical testing), in vegetal raw material, and in the food industry.it also has many applications in biotechnologies, typically enzyme assays for biochemistry including biosensors in nanotechnologies. it was first isolated by detlev müller in 1928 from aspergillus niger..
Insulin is used to treat a number of diseases including diabetes and its acute complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic states.it is also used along with glucose to treat high blood potassium levels.use during pregnancy is relatively safe for the baby. insulin was formerly used in a psychiatric treatment called insulin shock therapy..
Glucose is the most important carbohydrate fuel in the body. in the fed state, the majority of circulating glucose comes from the diet; in the fasting state, gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis maintain glucose concentrations. very little glucose is found in the diet as glucose; most is found in more complex carbohydrates that are broken down to monosaccharides though the digestive process.
