Accepted name: isomaltosyltransferase
Reaction: (1) 2 α-isomaltosyl-(1→4)-maltotriose = α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-α-isomaltosyl-(1→4)-maltotriose + maltotriose
(2) α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-α-isomaltosyl-(1→4)-maltotriose = cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl + maltotriose
Systematic name: α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-1,4-α-D-glucan:1,4-α-D-glucan 3-α-isomaltosyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, found in bacteria that produce cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl, acts on the products of EC, 1,4-α-glucan 6-α;-glucosyltransferase. It catalyses the α-(1→3) transfer of the isomaltosyl moiety of one substrate to another, resulting in α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-α-isomaltosyl-α-(1→4)-glucan formation. In addition, the enzyme catalyses the intramolecular cyclization of the product, eventually generating cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl.
