ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.203

Accepted Name
Carboxymethylcellulase.
Alternative Name(s)
CMCase.
Reaction catalysed
Endohydrolysis of (1->4)-beta-D-glucosidic linkages in (carboxymethyl)cellulose
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from the acidophilic bacterium Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius is an endo-cleaving hydrolase that cleaves beta(1->4)- linked residues.
  • However, it is specific for (carboxymethyl)cellulose and does not act on cellulosic substrates such as avicel.
