ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
branched primary-alkylsulfatase
Alternative Name(s)
type III branched primary-alkylsulfatase
Reaction catalysed
2-butyloctyl sulfate + H2O <=> 2-butyloctan-1-ol + H(+) + sulfate
  • 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, EC, EC, and EC
