Accepted name: α,α-trehalase
Reaction: α,α-trehalose + H2O = β-D-glucose + α-D-glucose
Other name(s): trehalase
Systematic name: α,α-trehalose glucohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme is an anomer-inverting glucosidase that catalyses the hydrolysis of the α-glucosidic O-linkage of α,α-trehalose, releasing initially equimolar amounts of α- and β-D-glucose. It is widely distributed in microorganisms, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates.
