EC 188.8.131.52 - Xyloglucan-specific endo-β-1,4-glucanase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- xyloglucan + H2O = xyloglucan oligosaccharides
The enzyme from Aspergillus aculeatus is specific for xyloglucan and does not hydrolyse other cell-wall components. The reaction involves endohydrolysis of 1,4-β-D-glucosidic linkages in xyloglucan with retention of the β-configuration of the glycosyl residues.
