Accepted name: sulfoquinovosidase
Reaction: a 6-sulfo-α-D-quinovosyl diacylglycerol + H2O = 6-sulfo-α-D-quinovose + a 1,2-diacylglycerol
Glossary: quinovose = 6-deoxy-D-glucopyranose
Other name(s): yihQ (gene name); 6-sulfo-α-D-quinovosyl diacylglycerol 6-sulfo-D-quinovohydrolase
Systematic name: 6-sulfo-α-D-quinovosyl diacylglycerol 6-sulfo-D-quinovohydrolase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas putida, hydrolyses terminal non-reducing α-sulfoquinovoside residues in α-sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerides and α-sulfoquinovosyl glycerol using a retaining mechanism. The enzyme belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase GH31 family.
