EC 184.108.40.206 - Glucan 1,4-α-maltohexaosidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Hydrolysis of (1→4)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in amylaceous polysaccharides, to remove successive maltohexaose residues from the non-reducing chain ends
cf. EC 220.127.116.11 glucan 1,4-α-glucosidase, which removes successive glucose residues; EC 18.104.22.168 β-amylase, which removes successive maltose residues; EC 22.214.171.124 glucan 1,4-α-maltotriohydrolase, which removes successive maltotriose units and EC 126.96.36.199 glucan 1,4-α-maltotetraohydrolase, which removes successive maltotetraose residues. The products have the α-configuration.
