ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.201

Accepted Name
Exo-chitinase (reducing end).
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of N,N'-diacetylchitobiose from the reducing end of chitin and chitodextrins
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme hydrolyzes the second glycosidic (1->4) linkage from reducing ends of chitin and chitodextrin molecules, liberating N,N'-diacetylchitobiose disaccharides.
