ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.70

Accepted Name
Glucan 1,6-alpha-glucosidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Exo-1,6-alpha-glucosidase.
Glucodextranase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in (1->6)-alpha-D-glucans and derived oligosaccharides
Comment(s)
  • Hydrolysis is accompanied by inversion at C-1, so that new reducing ends are released in the beta-configuration.
  • Dextrans and isomaltosaccharides are hydrolyzed, as is isomaltose, but very slowly.
  • The enzyme from some sources also possesses the activity of EC 3.2.1.59.
