EC 188.8.131.52 - Galactan endo-β-1,3-galactanase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- The enzyme specifically hydrolyses β-1,3-galactan and β-1,3-galactooligosaccharides
The enzyme from the fungus Flammulina velutipes (winter mushroom) hydrolyses the β(1→3) bonds found in type II plant arabinogalactans, which occur in cell walls of dicots and cereals. The enzyme is an endohydrolase, and requires at least 3 contiguous β-1,3-residues. cf. EC 184.108.40.206, arabinogalactan endo-β-1,4-galactanase and EC 220.127.116.11, galactan 1,3-β-galactosidase.
