ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
cycloisomaltooligosaccharide glucanotransferase
Reaction catalysed
cyclizes part of a (1->6)-alpha-D-glucan chain by formation of a (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic bond
  • Specific for (1->6)-alpha-D-glucans (dextrans) and, unlike cyclomaltodextrin glucanotransferase (EC, without activity toward (1->4)-alpha-D-glucans, such as amylose.
  • It also has no activity on oligosaccharides, such as amylopectin and pullulan, containing (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages at branch points.
  • The enzyme from Bacillus circulans T-3040 has been shown to form cycloisomalto-oligosaccharides of three sizes (7, 8 and 9 glucose units).
  • It will also catalyze the disproportionation of two isomalto- oligosaccharides molecules to yield a series of isomalto- oligosachharides and the addition of D-glucose to cycloisomalto- oligosaccharides with ring opening to form isomalto-oligosaccharides.
