IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
capsular-polysaccharide endo-1,3-α-galactosidase
Other names:
capsular polysaccharide galactohydrolase
polysaccharide depolymerase
Systematic name:
Aerobacter-capsular-polysaccharide galactohydrolase



Hydrolyses the galactosyl-α-1,3-D-galactose linkages only in the complex substrate, bringing about depolymerization.
