ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
oligosaccharide reducing-end xylanase.
Alternative Name(s)
reducing end xylose-releasing exo-oligoxylanase.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of (1->4)-beta-D-xylose residues from the reducing end of oligosaccharides
  • The enzyme, originally isolated from the bacterium Bacillus halodurans C-125, releases the xylose unit at the reducing end of oligosaccharides ending with the structure beta-D-xylopyranosyl- (1->4)-beta-D-xylopyranosyl-(1->4)-beta-D-xylopyranose, leaving the new reducing end in the alpha configuration.
  • It is specific for the beta anomers of xylooligosaccharides whose degree of polymerization is equal to or greater than 3.
  • The penultimate residue must be beta-D-xylopyranose, but replacing either of the flanking residues with glucose merely slows the rate greatly.
