IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.2.1.163

Names

Accepted name:
1,6-α-D-mannosidase
Systematic name:
(1→6)-α-mannosyl α-D-mannohydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

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.
