EC 3.2.1.32

Names

Accepted name:
endo-1,3-β-xylanase
Other names:
1,3-β-xylanase
1,3-xylanase
β-1,3-xylanase
endo-1,3-xylanase
endo-β-1,3-xylanase
xylanase [ambiguous]
1,3-β-D-xylan xylanohydrolase
endo-1,3-β-xylosidase [misleading]
xylan endo-1,3-β-xylosidase
Systematic name:
3-β-D-xylan xylanohydrolase

Reaction

Comments:

This enzyme is found mostly in marine bacteria, which break down the β(1,3)-xylan found in the cell wall of some green and red algae. The enzyme produces mainly xylobiose, xylotriose and xylotetraose.
