EC 3.2.1.58     
Accepted name: glucan 1,3-β-glucosidase
Reaction: Successive hydrolysis of β-D-glucose units from the non-reducing ends of (1→3)-β-D-glucans, releasing α-glucose
Other name(s): exo-1,3-β-glucosidase; β-1,3-glucan exo-hydrolase; exo (1→3)-glucanohydrolase; 1,3-β-glucan glucohydrolase
Systematic name: 3-β-D-glucan glucohydrolase
Comments: Acts on oligosaccharides, but very slowly on laminaribiose.
