Glycosidases, i.e. enzymes that hydrolyse O- and S-glycosyl compounds
Hydrolysis of (1->6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in alpha- and beta-limit dextrins of amylopectin and glycogen, and in amylopectin and pullulan
Plant enzymes with little or no action on glycogen. Action on amylopectin is incomplete, but action on alpha-limit dextrins is complete. Maltose is the smallest sugar it can release from an alpha-(1->6)-linkage.
