EC 3.2.1.87     
Accepted name: capsular-polysaccharide endo-1,3-α-galactosidase
Reaction: Random hydrolysis of (1→3)-α-D-galactosidic linkages in Aerobacter aerogenes capsular polysaccharide
Other name(s): polysaccharide depolymerase; capsular polysaccharide galactohydrolase
Systematic name: Aerobacter-capsular-polysaccharide galactohydrolase
Comments: Hydrolyses the galactosyl-α-1,3-D-galactose linkages only in the complex substrate, bringing about depolymerization.
