Accepted name: kojibiose hydrolase
Reaction: kojibiose + H2O = β-D-glucopyranose + D-glucopyranose
Glossary: kojibiose = α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→2)-D-glucopyranose
Other name(s): kojibiase
Systematic name: kojibiose glucohydrolase (configuration-inverting)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Flavobacterium johnsoniae and Mucilaginibacter mallensis, uses anomer-inverting mechanism to release β-glucose from the non-reducing ends of kojibiose and α-1,2-oligoglucans with a higher degree of polymerization.
