EC 3.1.1.74

Names

Accepted name:
cutinase
Systematic name:
cutin hydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

Cutin, a polymeric structural component of plant cuticles, is an hydroxy fatty acid polymer, usually C16 or C18 and that contains one to three hydroxyl groups. The enzyme from several fungal sources also hydrolyses the p-nitrophenyl esters of hexadecanoic acid. It is however inactive towards several esters that are substrates for non-specific esterases.
