ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.373

Accepted Name
Alpha-(1->2) branching sucrase.
Reaction catalysed
Sucrose + a (1->6)-alpha-D-glucan <=> D-fructose + a (1->6)-alpha-D-glucan containing a (1->2)-alpha-D-glucose branch
Comment(s)
  • The glucansucrases transfer a D-glusosyl residue from sucrose to a glucan chain.
  • They are classified based on the linkage by which they attach the transferred residue.
  • In some cases, in which the enzyme forms more than one linkage type, classification relies on the relative proportion of the linkages that are generated.
  • This enzyme introduces alpha(1->2) branches into (1->6)-alpha-D- glucans.
