Glycosidases are a large subgroup of carbohydrate-processing enzymes that hydrolytically cleave the glycosidic bond. Glycans formed by the action of glycosidases are involved in various biological processes. Genetic abnormalities in glycosidases are associated with inherited diseases. Thus, characterization of the catalytic activities of glycosidases is of great importance. Herein, we describe a simple and rapid approach for determining glycosidase activity profiles using coumarin-conjugated glycoside cocktails.
