|Guluronate-specific alginate lyase.
|Eliminative cleavage of alginate to give oligosaccharides with 4-deoxy-alpha-L-erythro-hex-4-enuronosyl groups at their non-reducing ends and alpha-L-guluronate at their reducing end|
- The enzyme catalyzes the degradation of alginate by a beta-
- It cleaves the (1->4) bond between alpha-L-guluronate and either
alpha-L-guluronate or beta-D-mannuronate, generating oligosaccharides
with 4-deoxy-alpha-L-erythro-hex-4-enuronosyl groups at their non-
reducing ends and alpha-L-guluronate at the reducing end.
- Depending on the composition of the substrate, the enzyme produces
oligosaccharides ranging from two to six residues, with preference
for shorter products.
- Cf. EC 184.108.40.206.
