ENZYME: 3.2.1.94


ID   3.2.1.94
DE   Glucan 1,6-alpha-isomaltosidase.
AN   Exo-isomaltohydrolase.
AN   Isomalto-dextranase.
CA   Hydrolysis of (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in polysaccharides,
CA   to remove successive isomaltose units from the non-reducing ends of the
CA   chains.
CC   -!- Optimum activity is on those 1,6-alpha-D-glucans containing 6, 7 and
CC       8 glucose units; those containing 3, 4 and 5 glucose units are
CC       hydrolyzed at slower rates.
