ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.88

Accepted Name
Non-reducing end beta-L-arabinopyranosidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Beta-L-arabinosidase.
Beta-L-arabinoside arabinohydrolase.
Vicianosidase.
Reaction catalysed
Removal of a terminal beta-L-arabinopyranose residue from the non-reducing end of its substrate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, which was characterized from dormant seeds of the plant Cajanus cajan (pigeon pea), has been shown to remove the terminal non-reducing beta-L-arabinopyranoside residue from the artificial substrate p-nitrophenyl-beta-L-arabinopyranose.
  • In the presence of methanol the enzyme demonstrates transglycosylase activity, transferring the arabinose moiety to methanol while retaining the anomeric configuration, generating 1-O-methyl-beta-L- arabinopyranose.
