Accepted name: limit dextrinase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of (1→6)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in α- and β-limit dextrins of amylopectin and glycogen, and in amylopectin and pullulan
Glossary: pullulan = a linear polymer of (1→6)-linked maltotriose units
Other name(s): R-enzyme; amylopectin-1,6-glucosidase; dextrin α-1,6-glucanohydrolase
Systematic name: dextrin 6-α-glucanohydrolase
Comments: Plant enzymes with little or no action on glycogen. Action on amylopectin is incomplete, but action on α-limit dextrins is complete. Maltose is the smallest sugar it can release from an α-(1→6)-linkage.
