Glucosidase inhibitor (IC50
values are 0.42 and 8.4 μ
M for acid α
-glucosidase and α
-1,6-glucosidase respectively). Inhibits liver glycogen breakdown in vivo
. Also acts as a chemical chaperone; chaperones β
-Glu folding at neutral p.H. allowing the stabilized enzyme to transit from the endoplasmic reticulum to the golgi, enabling proper trafficking to the lysosome.
