EC 188.8.131.52 - 4-α-glucanotransferase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
debranching enzyme maltodextrin glycosyltransferase
- Transfers a segment of a (1→4)-α-D-glucan to a new position in an acceptor, which may be glucose or a (1→4)-α-D-glucan
This entry covers the former separate entry for EC 184.108.40.206 (amylomaltase). The plant enzyme has been termed D-enzyme. An enzymic activity of this nature forms part of the mammalian and yeast glycogen debranching system (see EC 220.127.116.11 amylo-1,6-glucosidase).
