KEGG   ENZYME: 3.2.1.38Help
Entry
EC 3.2.1.38                 Enzyme                                 

Name
beta-D-fucosidase;
beta-fucosidase
Class
Hydrolases;
Glycosylases;
Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
beta-D-fucoside fucohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Hydrolysis of terminal non-reducing beta-D-fucose residues in beta-D-fucosides
Comment
Enzymes from some sources also hydrolyse beta-D-galactosides and/or beta-D-glucosides and/or alpha-L-arabinosides. The activity of EC 3.2.1.37 xylan 1,4-beta-xylosidase, is an associated activity found in some sources (e.g. liver).
History
EC 3.2.1.38 created 1965, deleted 1972, reinstated 1978
