EC 22.214.171.124 - 1,6-α-D-mannosidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Hydrolysis of the 1,6-linked α-D-mannose residues in α-D-Manp-(1→6)-D-Manp
The enzyme is specific for (1→6)-linked mannobiose and has no activity towards any other linkages, or towards p-nitrophenyl-α-D-mannopyranoside or baker's yeast mannan. It is strongly inhibited by Mn2+ but does not require Ca2+ or any other metal cofactor for activity.
