BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
3(or 4)-beta-D-glucan 3(4)-glucanohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Endohydrolysis of (1->3)- or (1->4)-linkages in beta-D-glucans when the glucose residue whose reducing group is involved in the linkage to be hydrolysed is itself substituted at C-3
Comment
Substrates include laminarin, lichenin and cereal D-glucans; different from EC 3.2.1.52 beta-N-acetylhexosaminidase.
History
EC 3.2.1.6 created 1961, modified 1976
