IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.1.1.86

Names

Accepted name:
rhamnogalacturonan acetylesterase
Other name:
RGAE
Systematic name:
rhamnogalacturonan 2/3-O-acetyl-α-D-galacturonate O-acetylhydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

The degradation of rhamnogalacturonan by rhamnogalacturonases depends on the removal of the acetyl esters from the substrate [1].
