ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.162

Accepted Name
Lambda-carrageenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Endo-beta-1,4-carrageenose 2,6,2'-trisulfate-hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
Endohydrolysis of (1->4)-beta-linkages in the backbone of lambda-carrageenan, resulting in the tetrasaccharide alpha-D-Galp2,6S(2)-(1->3)-beta-D-Galp2S-(1->4)-alpha-D-Galp2,6S(2)-(1->3)-D-Galp2S
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Pseudoalteromonas sp. is specific for lambda- carrageenan.
  • Iota-carrageenan (see EC 3.2.1.157), kappa-carrageenan (see EC 3.2.1.83), agarose and porphyran are not substrates.
