ENZYME entry: EC 3.1.6.22

Accepted Name
Branched primary-alkylsulfatase.
Alternative Name(s)
Type III branched primary-alkylsulfatase.
Reaction catalysed
2-butyloctyl sulfate + H(2)O <=> 2-butyloctan-1-ol + sulfate
Comment(s)
  • Sulfatase enzymes are classified as type I, in which the key catalytic residue is 3-oxo-L-alanine, type II, which are non-heme iron-dependent dioxygenases, or type III, whose catalytic domain adopts a metallo-beta-lactamase fold and binds two zinc ions as cofactors.
  • This enzyme belongs to the type III family.
  • The enzyme, characterized from a Pseudomonas strain, is specific for branched primary-alkyl sulfate esters and does not act on linear substrates such as dodecyl sulfate.
  • Cf. EC 3.1.6.1, EC 1.14.11.77, EC 3.1.6.19, and EC 3.1.6.21.
