BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamoyl-sugar hydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
feruloyl-polysaccharide + H2O = ferulate + polysaccharide [RN:R07292]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
feruloyl-polysaccharide [CPD:C06741];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
ferulate [CPD:C01494];
polysaccharide [CPD:C00420]
Comment
Catalyses the hydrolysis of the 4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamoyl (feruloyl) group from an esterified sugar, which is usually arabinose in "natural" substrates. p-Nitrophenol acetate and methyl ferulate are poorer substrates. All microbial ferulate esterases are secreted into the culture medium. They are sometimes called hemicellulase accessory enzymes, since they help xylanases and pectinases to break down plant cell wall hemicellulose.
