Enzymes and Genes:
alpha-L-rhamnosidase, putative: CC0978

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Marked as unbalanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: α-L-rhamnosidase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: α-L-rhamnosidase T, α-L-rhamnosidase N

Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of terminal non-reducing α-L-rhamnose residues in α-L-rhamnosides. The enzyme, found in animal tissues, plants, yeasts, fungi and bacteria, utilizes an inverting mechanism of hydrolysis, releasing β-L-rhamnopyranose. Substrates include naringin, rutin, quercitrin, hesperidin, dioscin, terpenyl glycosides and many other natural glycosides containing terminal α-L-rhamnose.
