Accepted name: 4-α-glucanotransferase
Reaction: Transfers a segment of a (1→4)-α-
D-glucan to a new position in an acceptor, which may be glucose or a (1→4)-α- D-glucan
Other name(s): disproportionating enzyme; dextrin glycosyltransferase;
D-enzyme; debranching enzyme maltodextrin glycosyltransferase; amylomaltase; dextrin transglycosylase; 1,4-α- D-glucan:1,4-α- D-glucan 4-α- D-glycosyltransferase
Systematic name: (1→4)-α-
D-glucan:(1→4)-α- D-glucan 4-α- D-glycosyltransferase
Comments: This entry covers the former separate entry for EC 188.8.131.52 (amylomaltase). The plant enzyme has been termed
D-enzyme. An enzymic activity of this nature forms part of the mammalian and yeast glycogen debranching system (see EC 184.108.40.206 amylo-α-1,6-glucosidase).
