Reactions known to consume the compound:

(1,3)-β-D-xylan degradation :
a (1->3)-β-D-xylan + n H2O → n+1 a (1->3)-β-D-xylan oligosaccharide
a (1->3)-β-D-xylan oligosaccharide + n H2O → n β-D-xylopyranose

Not in pathways:

Reactions known to produce the compound:

Not in pathways:
acetylxylan + n H2O → xylan + n acetate

Not in pathways:
keratan sulfate + H2O → n an oligosaccharide
blood group substance B + H2O → n an oligosaccharide
blood group substance A + H2O → n an oligosaccharide
a sialyloligosaccharide + H2O → an oligosaccharide + N-acetylneuraminate
a 1,2-β-D-glucan + H2O → n an oligosaccharide
a fucoidan + H2O → fucose + a fucose sulfate + an oligosaccharide

cellulose and hemicellulose degradation (cellulolosome) :
