Accepted name: endo-polygalacturonase
Reaction: (1,4-α-D-galacturonosyl)n+m + H2O = (1,4-α-D-galacturonosyl)n + (1,4-α-D-galacturonosyl)m
Other name(s): pectin depolymerase (ambiguous); pectinase (ambiguous); endopolygalacturonase; pectolase (ambiguous); pectin hydrolase (ambiguous); pectin polygalacturonase (ambiguous); polygalacturonase (ambiguous); poly-α-1,4-galacturonide glycanohydrolase (ambiguous); endogalacturonase; endo-D-galacturonase; poly(1,4-α-D-galacturonide) glycanohydrolase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: (1→4)-α-D-galacturonan glycanohydrolase (endo-cleaving)
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the random hydrolysis of (1→4)-α-D-galactosiduronic linkages in pectate and other galacturonans. Different forms of the enzyme have different tolerances to methyl esterification of the substrate.
