ENZYME entry: EC 3.2.1.14

Accepted Name
chitinase
Alternative Name(s)
1,4-beta-poly-N-acetylglucosaminidase
chitodextrinase
poly-beta-glucosaminidase
Reaction catalysed
Random endo-hydrolysis of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide (1->4)-beta-linkages in chitin and chitodextrins
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme binds to chitin and randomly cleaves glycosidic linkages in chitin and chitodextrins in a non-processive mode, generating chitooligosaccharides and free ends on which exo-chitinases and exo- chitodextrinases can act.
  • Activity is greatly stimulated in the presence of EC 1.14.99.53, which attacks the crystalline structure of chitin and makes the polymer more accesible to the chitinase. cf. EC 3.2.1.202.
