EC 188.8.131.52 - α-mannan endo-1,2-α-mannanase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Hydrolysis of the terminal α-D-mannosyl-(1→3)-α-D-mannose disaccharide from α-D-mannosyl-(1→3)-α-D-mannosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannosyl side chains in fungal cell wall α-mannans.
The enzyme, characterized from the gut bacteria Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron and Bacteroides xylanisolvens, can also catalyse the reaction of EC 184.108.40.206, glycoprotein endo-α-1,2-mannosidase.
