7], Plant-derived fibers and crop derivatives of lignocellulosic composition have been reported to be good biodegradable reinforcing fillers [8-10], Therefore, we hypothesized that the biopolymers of the banana peels might be useful as a filler and reinforcing material [11], During banana ripening, the starch reserve rapidly transforms into sucrose and is further converted into glucose and fructose by the activities of amylase, glycosidase, phosphorylase, sucrose synthase, and invertase [12, 13], Thus, for starch production, it is necessary to process the bananas while they are unripe.
Commensal organisms may synthesize glycosidase, leading to damage of glycocalyx or disaccharidases.
The decrease in the anthocyanin content of the cocoa beans with pod storage might be due to the activities of glycosidase.

Conclusion: Ultradiluted belladonna could inhibit JE virus infection in CAM, which may be mediated through glycosidase inhibitory role of calystegines present in belladonna.
In an animal pharmacokinetic study (18), mogrol and mogroside I were detected in the plasma after oral administration of a mogrosides mixture, suggesting that mogrosides might be digested by glycosidase on the surface of intestinal epithelium cells and transported into the blood stream passively.

Beta-glucuronidase is a member of the lysosomal glycosidase family that catalyzes breakdown of complex carbohydrates (hydrolysis of [beta]-D-glucuronic acid residues from the non-reducing end of mucopolysaccharides -also referred to as glycosaminoglycans- such as heparan sulfate [9].
Patients who exhibit loss of glycosidase enzyme activity alone are classified as GSD IIIc and patients who exhibit loss of transferase enzyme activity alone are classified as GDS IIId (2).
InSea2 blocks both alpha amylase and alpha glycosidase enzymes (it blocks the breakdown of both starch and table sugar).
