ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.202

Accepted Name
Endo-chitodextinase.
Alternative Name(s)
Chitodextrinase.
Endolytic chitodextrinase.
Periplasmic chitodextrinase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of chitodextrins, releasing N,N'-diacetylchitobiose and small amounts of N,N',N''-triacetylchitotriose
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Vibrio furnissii, is an endo-cleaving chitodextrinase that participates in the the chitin catabolic pathway found in members of the Vibrionaceae.
  • Unlike EC 3.2.1.14, it has no activity on chitin.
  • The smallest substrate is a tetrasaccharide, and the final products are N,N'-diacetylchitobiose and small amounts of N,N',N''-triacetylchitotriose.
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.200 and EC 3.2.1.201.
