ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.2.26

Accepted Name
Oligo-alginate lyase.
Alternative Name(s)
Exo-oligoalginate lyase.
Oligoalginate lyase.
Reaction catalysed
Cleavage of 4-deoxy-alpha-L-erythro-hex-4-enopyranuronoside oligosaccharides into 4-deoxy-alpha-L-erythro-hex-4-enopyranuronate monosaccharides
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme degrades unsaturated oligosaccharides produced by the action of alginate lyases (EC 4.2.2.3 and EC 4.2.2.11) on alginate, by repeatedly removing the unsaturated residue from the non-reducing end until only unsaturated monosaccharides are left.
  • The enzyme catalyzes a beta-elimination reaction, generating a new unsaturated non-reducing end after removal of the pre-existing one.
