An enzyme which converts glucose into gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). It is used to help diagnose diabetes by determining if glucose is present in the patient's urine; if the glucose is present, the hydrogen peroxide produced in the reaction can be detected by reacting it with an indicator to change the color of the urine.
