Accepted name: 1,3-α-isomaltosidase
Reaction: cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl + 2 H2O = 2 isomaltose (overall reaction)
(1a) cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl + H2O = α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-isomaltose
(1b) α-isomaltosyl-(1→3)-isomaltose + H2O = 2 isomaltose
Systematic name: 1,3-α-isomaltohydrolase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Bacillus sp. NRRL B-21195 and Kribbella flavida, participates in the degradation of starch. The cyclic tetrasaccharide cyclobis-(1→6)-α-nigerosyl is formed from starch extracellularly and imported into the cell, where it is degraded to glucose.
