exo-1,4-beta-glucanase;
1,4-beta-D-glucan glucohydrolase
Class
Hydrolases;
Glycosylases;
Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
4-beta-D-glucan glucohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
Hydrolysis of (1->4)-linkages in (1->4)-beta-D-glucans, to remove successive glucose units
Reaction(KEGG)
Comment
Acts on 1,4-beta-D-glucans and related oligosaccharides. Cellobiose is hydrolysed, but very slowly.
