Accepted Name
Glucan 1,4-alpha-maltohexaosidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Exo-maltohexaohydrolase.
G6-amylase.
Maltohexaose-producing amylase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of (1->4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in amylaceous polysaccharides, to remove successive maltohexaose residues from the non-reducing chain ends
Comment(s)
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.3, which removes successive glucose residues.
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.2, which removes successive maltose residues.
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.116, which removes successive maltotriose residues.
  • Cf. EC 3.2.1.60, which removes successive maltotetraose residues.
  • The products have the alpha-configuration.
