ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.154

Accepted Name
Fructan beta-(2,6)-fructosidase.
Alternative Name(s)
6-FEH.
Beta-(2-6)-fructan exohydrolase.
Levanase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of terminal, non-reducing (2->6)-linked beta-D-fructofuranose residues in fructans
Comment(s)
  • Possesses one of the activities of EC 3.2.1.80.
  • While the best substrates are the levan-type fructans such as 6-kestotriose (beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2->6)-beta-D-fructofuranosyl alpha-D-glucopyranoside) and 6,6-kestotetraose (beta-D- fructofuranosyl-(2->6)-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2->6)-beta-D- fructofuranosyl alpha-D-glucopyranoside), some (but not all) inulin- type fructans can also be hydrolyzed, but more slowly (cf. EC 3.2.1.153).
  • Sucrose, while being a very poor substrate, can substantially inhibit enzyme activity in some cases.
