Entry
EC 3.2.1.2                  Enzyme                                 

Name
beta-amylase;
saccharogen amylase;
glycogenase;
beta amylase, beta-amylase;
1,4-alpha-D-glucan maltohydrolase
Class
Hydrolases;
Glycosylases;
Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
4-alpha-D-glucan maltohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Hydrolysis of (1->4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in polysaccharides so as to remove successive maltose units from the non-reducing ends of the chains
Reaction(KEGG)
(other) R02112 R06159(G)
Show
Comment
Acts on starch, glycogen and related polysaccharides and oligosaccharides producing beta-maltose by an inversion. The term 'beta'' relates to the initial anomeric configuration of the free sugar group released and not to the configuration of the linkage hydrolysed.
Pathway
Starch and sucrose metabolism
Metabolic pathways
Orthology
K01177
