Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0004645 - phosphorylase activity

Synonyms: 1,4-alpha-D-glucan:phosphate alpha-D-glucosyltransferase activity, 1,4-alpha-glucan phosphorylase activity, polyphosphorylase activity

Definition: Catalysis of the reaction: 1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl(n) + phosphate = 1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl(n-1) + alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate. The name should be qualified in each instance by adding the name of the natural substrate, e.g. maltodextrin phosphorylase, starch phosphorylase, glycogen phosphorylase.

Parent Classes:
GO:0016758 - transferase activity, transferring hexosyl groups

Child Classes:
GO:0008184 - glycogen phosphorylase activity (2),
GO:0009018 - sucrose phosphorylase activity (1),
GO:0031220 - maltodextrin phosphorylase activity (1)

Term Members:
maltodextrin phosphorylase monomer (malP),
