EC 126.96.36.199 - Oligo-1,6-glucosidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
limit dextrinase (erroneous)
- Hydrolysis of (1→6)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in some oligosaccharides produced from starch and glycogen by α-amylase, and in isomaltose.
This enzyme, like EC 188.8.131.52 (amylo-α-1,6-glucosidase), can release an α-1→6-linked glucose, whereas the shortest chain that can be released by EC 184.108.40.206 (pullulanase), EC 220.127.116.11 (limit dextrinase), and EC 18.104.22.168 (isoamylase) is maltose. It also hydrolyses isomaltulose (palatinose), isomaltotriose and panose, but has no action on glycogen or phosphorylase limit dextrin. The enzyme from intestinal mucosa is a single polypeptide chain that also catalyses the reaction of EC 22.214.171.124 (sucrose α-glucosidase). Differs from EC 126.96.36.199 (amylo-α-1,6-glucosidase) in its preference for short-chain substrates and in its not requiring the 6-glucosylated residue to be at a branch point, i.e. linked at both C-1 and C-4.
