Accepted name: 1,2-α-L-fucosidase
Reaction: methyl-2-α-L-fucopyranosyl-β-D-galactoside + H2O = L-fucose + methyl β-D-galactoside
Other name(s): almond emulsin fucosidase; α-(1→2)-L-fucosidase
Systematic name: 2-α-L-fucopyranosyl-β-D-galactoside fucohydrolase
Comments: Highly specific for non-reducing terminal L-fucose residues linked to D-galactose residues by a 1,2-α-linkage. Not identical with EC 1,3-α-L-fucosidase.
