Accepted name: protodioscin 26-O-β-D-glucosidase
Reaction: protodioscin + H2O = 26-deglucoprotodioscin + D-glucose
Other name(s): F26G; torvosidase; CSF26G1; furostanol glycoside 26-O-β-D-glucosidase; furostanol 26-O-β-D-glucoside glucohydrolase
Systematic name: protodioscin glucohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme has been characterized from the plants Cheilocostus speciosus and Solanum torvum. It also hydrolyses the 26-β-D-glucose group from related steroid glucosides such as protogracillin, torvoside A and torvoside H.
