ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.149

Accepted Name
Beta-primeverosidase.
Reaction catalysed
A 6-O-(beta-D-xylopyranosyl)-beta-D-glucopyranoside + H(2)O <=> 6-O-(beta-D-xylopyranosyl)-beta-D-glucopyranose + an alcohol
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is responsible for the formation of the alcoholic aroma in oolong and black tea.
  • In addition to beta-primeverosides (i.e. 6-O-(beta-D-xylopyranosyl)- beta-D-glucopyranosides), it also hydrolyzes 6-O-(beta-D- apiofuranosyl)-beta-D-glucopyranosides and, less rapidly, beta- vicianosides and 6-O-(alpha-L-arabinofuranosyl)-beta-D- glucopyranosides, but not beta-glucosides.
  • Geranyl-, linaloyl-, benzyl- and p-nitrophenol glycosides are all hydrolyzed.
