IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.2.1.162

Names

Accepted name:
λ-carrageenase
Other name:
endo-β-1,4-carrageenose 2,6,2'-trisulfate-hydrolase
Systematic name:
endo-(1→4)-β-carrageenose 2,6,2'-trisulfate-hydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme from Pseudoalteromonas sp. is specific for λ-carrageenan. ι-Carrageenan (see EC 3.2.1.157, ι-carrageenase), κ-carrageenan (see EC 3.2.1.83, κ-carrageenase), agarose and porphyran are not substrates.
