EC 18.104.22.168 - Glucan 1,4-α-glucosidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Hydrolysis of terminal (1→4)-linked α-D-glucose residues successively from non-reducing ends of the chains with release of β-D-glucose
Most forms of the enzyme can rapidly hydrolyse 1,6-α-D-glucosidic bonds when the next bond in the sequence is 1,4, and some preparations of this enzyme hydrolyse 1,6- and 1,3-α-D-glucosidic bonds in other polysaccharides. This entry covers all such enzymes acting on polysaccharides more rapidly than on oligosaccharides. EC 22.214.171.124 α-glucosidase, from mammalian intestine, can catalyse similar reactions.
