Accepted name: oligo-alginate lyase
Reaction: Cleavage of poly(4-deoxy-α-L-erythro-hexopyranuronoside) oligosaccharides with 4-deoxy-α-L-erythro-hex-4-enopyranuronosyl groups at their non-reducing ends into 4-deoxy-α-L-erythro-hex-4-enopyranuronate monosaccharides.
Other name(s): aly (gene name) (ambiguous); oalS17 (gene name); oligoalginate lyase; exo-oligoalginate lyase
Systematic name: alginate oligosaccharide 4-deoxy-α-L-erythro-hex-4-enopyranuronate-(1→4)-hexananopyranuronate lyase
Comments: The enzyme degrades unsaturated oligosaccharides produced by the action of alginate lyases (EC and EC on alginate, by repeatedly removing the unsaturated residue from the non-reducing end until only unsaturated monosaccharides are left. The enzyme catalyses a β-elimination reaction, generating a new unsaturated non-reducing end after removal of the pre-existing one.
